Welcome to CBA Belgium Observatory

CBA Belgium Observatory is a privately owned astronomical observatory, located in Landen, Belgium, and operated by Tonny Vanmunster. My mission is to make high-accuracy photometric CCD studies, primarily of variable stars and exoplanets.

My observatory is the Belgian node of the Center for Backyard Astrophysics (CBA), a worldwide network of professional and amateur astronomers to study Cataclysmic Variables. Next to my CBA activities, I actively participate in cataclysmic variable star observing campaigns of other organisations (a/o AAVSO). 

I also contribute exoplanet observations to XO and, and occasionally cooperate with other amateur and professional astronomers in studies of Delta Scuti stars and RR Lyrae stars.

I'm the author of Peranso, a light curve and period analysis software package.

CBA Belgium Observatory features two CCD-equipped 0.35-m (14 inch) Celestron Schmidt-Cassegrain telescopes on computerized mounts





 Powerful software for Variable Star & Asteroid Light Curve Analysis, offering a variety of period analysis methods
