Astrophotography by Gerald Rhemann

Astrophotography in Namibia

Since 2001, I have been visiting Namibia five times so far. My last visit was in April 2010, where I installed an ASA DDM 85 mount and an ASA N12" Astrograph at the observatory on Farm Tivoli.


The atmosphere on Farm Tivoli is very relaxed. This is a view of some of the rooms.


This is the observatory on Farm Tivoli, where the new mount and the new telescope had to be installed.


After the installation of the equipment, the polar adjustment and pointing was done.


This was the view towards south from my working place.
