Due to personal reasons, this site will still be maintained very irregulary for some time.
Yesterday evening it was the first evening to observe the comet C/2011 L4 PanSTARRS and the only 22 hours old young moon right beside it. I took my kids and we went into the cold air at -5°C. We were lucky and found the moon already very early and a little bit later we discovered the comet as well. We took strings of images, but we were disappointed as the comet was that small and faint. Go and see images HERE
After the while off, I spent some time through the last days to set up the Digital Modes like WSPR, WSJT on my Windows 8 computer. As far as I can see, everything is running fine again now.
Hello Visitor ! Nice to see you here ...
The TS690s is sold. I rearranged a lot of things and get all the stuff running again after this years' break. Still things are going slow, but the station is working with the Flex-1500 as central rig. The IC820 for VHF/UHF needs some work and that is done soon hopefully.
Oh, I almost forgot: You will find my Venustransit images on my site now. We had luck and could almost see it undisturbed. (Images of the Venustransit)
