ASA Astrographs on German equatorial mounts are used for imaging and an apochromatic refractor is used for visual observations. We operate from a roll off roof observatory as well as from a rotating dome.
All-Sky camera EN-97
Oostkapelle has been an all-sky station since 1979. This camera covers the whole sky and is focused on catching fireballs.
We cooperate with other all-sky stations in our part of Europe. Occasionally we also capture re-entry’s of satellites or other space debris.
Every night this calibrated instrument measures the darkness of our local night sky. Our goal is to map the local light pollution and by doing so creating more awareness of the light pollution problem which affects us all.
