About Me

My name is Lothar Schanne, living in Emden, Germany.

Since 2004 I am engaged in optical astronomical spectroscopy. Until 2013 I also had my own observatory with a 14″-Schmidt-Cassegrin-Telescope and a Lhires III-spectrograph equipped with a cooled KAF1602E-CCD-Camera.

With this website I would like to pass on my experiences and knowledge.
