The weather has not been nice to me since my last post. A bit of astro photography every now and then, but mostly it was clouded. Most sessions were cut short due to clouds moving in or the moon risin...Read More
Well, October is not quite over yet, but when I look at the weather forecast and the fact that we’ll have Full Moon soon, I believe I can already post my October photos. After the Heart Nebula, ...Read More
Autumn is back – from my location a perfect time to shoot some interessting bits and pieces in Cassiopeia. Also playing around with the new scope and the Moon. I still have no clue why I canR...Read More

On July 27 we expected to see one of the astronomical highlights for the year: a total lunar eclipse. We were really unlucky with the weather. Two weeks of sunshine and then a thunderstorm cell develo...Read More

In 2017 I got myself an iOptron SkyGuider Pro – a little travel mount which allowed me to take photos with more than only a few seconds of exposure. In addition to the mount I got myself a small...Read More
For the third year in a row the federal armed forces celebrated the Armed Forces Day on June the 10th. At 16 sites in Germany the armed forces opened their gates to welcome visitors. In Bavaria the ai...Read More
Finally had a chance to do a milky way panorama shoot in the alps. Barmsee near to Garmisch-Partenkirchen was the chosen location. The weather was ideal so we decided to drive there spontaneously inst...Read More
