Astronomical sky photos

During visits to observatories I have obtained a number of astronomical photos and nighttime photos of telescopes, partly with sky background. These I have now scanned. Low-resolution scans are displayed so as to take up little disk space.

Astronomical photos

These were taken - with my film/camera - by, or with substantial help by, Stefan Binnewies and his friends during an observing run at La Silla in 1989. All photos were taken with Agfa 1000 RS colour slide film.

Stellar track photos

All of these were also taken with an Agfa 1000 RS colour slide film.

Nighttime telescope photos

These photos were mostly taken with a Fujichrome, later Fuji Sensia, 100 ASA colour slide film. Some of these photos are also used on the pages describing the astronomical observatories shown.

Eclipses/transits/conjunctions

I have now posted some basics about Solar eclipses, based on photos taken by me. The early photos were taken with a Fuji Sensia 100 ASA colour slide film, then a number of observations follow that were made with compact digital cameras with 12x (15x) optical zoom. Since 2009 a digital SLR camera with a 300-mm telelens is in use.
