 TELESCOPES AND CCD-CAMERAS

 

 

Rozhen NAO is equipped with four telescopes: a universal 2m Ritchey-Chretien-Coude (RCC) reflector made by Carl Zeiss, Jena; 50/70cm Schmidt-camera; 60cm reflector by Zeiss, Jena and “home-made” 15cm solar coronagraph. Observations of wide class of astronomical and astrophysical problems – from investigations of solar system bodies till extragalactic objects are obtained here: asteroids and comets; spectra of different kinds of stars; stellar clusters; nearby and distant galaxies and quasars, etc.
