GM 3000 HPS – 3,2 Meter Classic Dome (slit dome)

Here, after long planning, an observatory with its very own character was realized. The setup is based on a GM 3000 HPS with a Baader steel column. This stable base leaves a lot of room for the payload, the TEC 180 FL does not load the mount, but is the suitable visual and photographic main telescope for this observatory. In parallel, other smaller telescopes are mounted, e.g. for solar observation.

The valuable technology is protected by a 3.2m Baader dome in classical design, prepared for remote use if desired in the future.

Together with the consequently planned and lovingly furnished building, an amateur astronomer's dream has been realized here.
