At the weekend I was in Linz at the CEDIC 2017 with my astro colleague Jürgen Beisser. With 170 participants from all over Europe it was the most visited CEDIC so far. I found the event very successful, because besides all the interesting lectures, I finally got to know many astrophotographers from Germany and abroad. Apart from the esteemed Austrian colleagues, Fabian Neyer from Switzerland and Sara Wager from Spain were also present. I was really happy about it! As a souvenir, I bought directly from the exhibition the new Lacerta Motorfokus for the Newton, which I then also immediately installed the next day. It's running!
