The winter stay became the spring one. However after many clear nights in April only one in May until now. We had spectacular green flash on 1st of May (see astro-gallery ), then practically nothing special.
In the meantime new section appeared in this web. In Photogrammetry – you can find several 3D reconstructions of objects typical for madeirian architecture.
On 30 of April the project proposal MADASTRA was submitted to FCT. Now waiting for the approval. If successful can be a big milestone in the development of observational astronomy in Madeira. The plan is to put in operation two small optical telescopes. The existing one 12″ Meade telescope on the terrace of the University to perform spectroscopic observations. The new 14″ will be installed on Achada do Teixeira (1590 m asl) and used for photometric observations.
