Baader dome request information

Are you seriously interested in a Baader dome? Due to our experiences from many years of dome inquiries, we have a pool of questions which we almost always have to clarify in advance, in order to adapt an observatory project to your needs in the best possible way. For this reason, we provide a page with further information on the requirements for the installation of Baader domes. There we also give an approximate starting price of our smallest constructions, but we would like to point out that we do not publish price lists, but calculate each dome project exactly tailored to the customer's requirements and the climatic conditions.

On the information page you will also find a dome contact  form, which you are welcome to fill in if you are interested in a Baader observatory.
