If any day you are getting bored and want to know about astronomy, head to Sternwarte St. Kanzian Am Klopeinersee observatory which was built more than 50 years ago by a pioneer of Carinthian astronomy, Helmrich Lambrecht. He built a dome with a diameter of 3.2m on the roof of his house in the middle of the St. Kanzian. One can enter the dome by accessing the garage. Today the Sternwarte is owned by Mr. Eugen Freund, the grandson of Lambrechts. Sternwarte has used a big tourist attraction as the management want to spread the astronomy among the population and make the people more familiar with the Nachthimmel. In the dome are three telescopes on a parallactic mount with tracking. The main telescope is a 170mm Newton with 1500mm focal length. A 104 / 920mm Newton is mounted in parallel as a guide tube. The mount also carries a phototube and a 50/500 viewfinder with 8x magnification is available. Everything still looks from the ancient times of the 50s and 60s of the 20th century. There are also great guides available with expert amateur astronomers.
