    Our new planisphere can be found in the foyer, opposite the entrance to the Klaus Tschira Auditorium.

    Regular visitors to the HdA will likely have played with our planisphere at least once, setting the sky chart to a specific date and time to see which constellations and which potentially interesting deep-sky objects are visible in the sky over Heidelberg.

    Now, thanks to sponsorship by Sterne und Weltraum (Germany's largest popular astronomy magazine, whose editorial office are in the HdA) and the Füssener Sternfreunde (the planispheres' creators), we've been able to upgrade to a newer full-color model that contains many more deep sky objects such as nebulae and galaxies.

    To our supporters: many thanks, and to our visitors: enjoy!
