Celestron 9 1/4

Heinz Scsibrany passed away on December 30, 2010 in the morning as a result of a sudden and unexpected disease. We will never forget the friendly personality and his valuable contributions to astronomy and chemoinformatics.

His english website will remain here for the next future including the possibility of downloads of software he has provided for us.

Thank you Heinz!
