Sternwarte Remscheid

My girlfriend and I happened to be in the vicinity of Remscheid this sunday. Thanks to google, I found something interesting to explore: the local astronomical observatory.

On Sunday afternoons when the weather is nice they offer “sun observations”, plus you can walk around on the outside of the dome and take in the view.

Looking directly at the sun and being able to see solar prominences (flares / storms on the surface of the sun) was surprisingly impressive, really. Escpecially considering that this was a rather small and simple telescope. Of course I couldn’t take fotos through the telescope, but it looked a bit like this, just in a brighter red and much more detailed.

Schloss Dyck – Illumina 10.0


“Schloss Dyck is an old castle with a huge park. Once a year for 10 days it is beautifully illuminated and open at night. None of these photos has been edited, they’re exactly how I took them.”
