AAV Lue-Stailas is an innovative center for stargazing and amateur astrophotography. It was founded by Drs. Vaclav and Jitka Ourednik and opened on December 12, 2009 in the International Year of Astronomy.

The site is on the grounds of the tiny village Lü in a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve in the Swiss Alps. On a sunny terrace at 2000 m above sea level, it faces south towards the breathtaking mountain panorama of the Val Muestair.

 

 

 

The exceptional location of the center allows the guests not only to do excellent astrophotography with high-end imaging equipment but also offers an unforgettable stay with gorgeous mountain sceneries and landscapes, with endless opportunities for walks, hiking, and skiing, and many architectural, historic, and culinary treasures to sample from.

 



Dobson

A 40cm Dobson for unforgettable trips to the Universe: For one year, the renowned company "Telescopes Drbohlav" has very generously borrowed us recently one of their larger but still very transportable 16" Dobson telescopes for tests and demonstrations under the pristine skies above Lue. Set up in 5-10 minutes, see the company's page here, and with its focal length of 2000mm at f/5, the scope offers enough magnification and light to turn even smaller deep sky objects into gems for stargazing. The parabolic primary mirror with 9-point attachment is aluminum-coated with a protective SiO2 overcoat. Primary and secondary are tunable in their position in order to reach perfect collimation.
