Weitwinkelaufnahme in Cassiopeia
20. August 1993: Dieses Bild wurde von einer Original-Photoplatte des Palomar/ESO-Atlas des nördlichen Himmels vergrößert und zeigt die Regionen um die IC 1795 (rechte, obere Ecke) und IC 1805 (Bildmitte) Strukturen im Sternbild Cassiopeia. Um die immense Bildinformation der Originalplatte wiederzugeben, wurde die photographische Technik der "unscharfen Maskierung" bei anschließender "Bildverstärkung" angewendet.

First Optical Identification of an Extragalactic Pulsar
3. Juni 1993: The recent identification of the optical image of a pulsar in the Large Magellanic Cloud is a fine illustration of astronomy as a high-tech international science. It is the first extragalactic pulsar to be so identified and only the third radio pulsar, after those in the Crab and Vela nebulae in the Milky Way, for which this has been possible.

Brightest Known Double Quasar Discovered
3. Juni 1993: Although astronomy is an exact natural science, chance sometimes plays an important role. The recent discovery during an otherwise routine observation of the hitherto brightest known double quasar [1] would not have been possible without some luck.

Another Trans-plutonian Minor Planet: 1993 FW
1. Juni 1993: On March 28, 1993, American astronomers David Jewitt and Jane Luu on Hawaii discovered a slow-moving minor planet of magnitude 23. More observations were made the following night, confirming the unusual motion and indicating that it is located at a very large distance from the Sun, possibly far beyond Pluto, the outermost known, major planet. It was given the preliminary designation 1993 FW (IAU Circular 5730)

Frontiers of Astronomy
27. März 1993: The past decades have witnessed a dramatic increase in our knowledge of the Universe we live in. New instruments for astronomical observations and analysis are unveiling the secrets of deep space at an ever-increasing pace. Detailed studies of planets, stars, nebulae, galaxies and strange, exotic celestial objects have provided us with new insights into the formation, structure and evolution of our Universe.

"Toutatis" Observed with the ESO New Technology Telescope
29. Januar 1993: This photo is a composite of five exposures of Minor Planet no.~4179, also known as Toutatis, obtained with the 3.5-m ESO New Technology Telescope on December 21, 1992, by ESO-astronomer Jesper Storm. At this time, Toutatis was about 13 million km from the Earth, i.e. 33 times more distant than the Moon. On December 8, this Minor Planet passed within 3.6 million km from the Earth, but at that time it was not possible to observe it with ground-based optical telescopes, because it was situated between the Earth and the Sun. However, very good radar images were obtained which showed thecratered surface of the object.
