ABOUT

S.C.R.A.P. is a private observatory in northern Stockholm, Sweden, at  18d03'44.9"E, 59d22'49.5"N. It's located in the attic of our house in the suburb of Stocksund. 

The area is somewhat light-polluted and the seeing is mediocre, typically 3-5 arc seconds.


The observatory is designed mainly for observational astrophysics - the pure pleasures of stellar spectroscopy and CCD photometry.


There are many do-it-yourself astrophysics projects for small telescopes that are both entertaining and educational. By trying to reproduce some of the measurements of the professionals, it is easier to understand many of the basic mechanisms of this universe.
