The Aldebaran – Chronicles of the Stars Pilgrim

Conundrum of Astronomy, particularly in South East Asia

Balai Cerab Negara & The Blue Reptile

This is the main story of the big scene of ISYA, visiting observatory … woahhh … modern observatory, with all modern & sophisticated facilities, made me envy for the whole things. They have anything that i only dream of; but dreaming is not a bad idea right? The more important thing to do is doing something with anything you have.

Technically speaking, for sun observation, they have seven telescopes with different filters!! For the night observation, they have this Ritchey-Chretien 20″ with giant Paramount mounting, all had been completed set up with computer controlled. They have many kind of filters, spectrograph, CCD’s .. great .. great ..

For the softwares, they use MaximIDL & Adobe Photoshop .. so expensive, i have only dream to use it back then

Alas, that is not the main attention (at least for me) for the first time visit to this observatory (Balai Cerab is what they say in Malaysian language), i have great attention of this creature that ‘greet’ us on our first visit. How so???

Yeah yeah .. we saw one lizard, quiet big around 30 cm long, directly i remembered the creature from computer game “Fall-Out”, which discuss about this kind of gecko .. hahaha .. i don’t know how can i link this distance event, but you know, there is one kind of tropical lizard from tropical land with latin’s name: cosymbotus platyurus (flat-tailed gecko), so .. gecko gecko gecko?? is this coincidence?? I guess something just intertwining in my memory, but it was indeed compelling more, instead of the sophisticated of the observatory.


Well, we will observing from this observatory later, so i can wait for another moment to taste the satisfaction of modern observatory, in the mean time, i just wondering about this gecko stuff. Irrelevant, but fun!

  2. ya buat imaging, obviously .. sepanjang yang g liat sih, photoshop(TM) cuman dipake untuk “enhanching” image, seperti level balance, contrasting, bla bla bla ..

    fyi, pada tahap ini teman2 di LNO baru menguji-cobakan teleskop untuk imaging, belum mulai untuk photometry & spectroscopy. Jadi ya, it is a good start anyway .. so, teman2 yang emang mau bekerja profesional di bidang astronomy, LNO is a good place to start ..
