Publisher Description

The Bronberg Observatory (25[degrees]54'32 S, 28[degrees]26'18 E, alt 1590 m) is situated 40 km south-cast of Pretoria, on plot 39, Rietfontein JR 395, which is located on top of the Bronberg ridge, which stretches from Pretoria to just east of the observatory. The Observatory, which is run by Berto Monard, is also the dedicated African participant in the global CBA (Centre for Backyard Astrophysics) network under the name of "CBA Pretoria" and the dedicated observing station for the microlensing follow up network (uFUN). The observatory houses a Meade 12-inch RCX400, which is permanently mounted on a pier and polar wedge. This telescope is used with a CCD camera, SBIG ST-7XME and a focal reducer that produces an effective f/5. A filter wheel with BVRI filters is part of the system. The main types of observation at the Bronberg Observatory / CBA Pretoria were explained in the 2002 and 2004 reports.
