About me...


I had my first contact with astronomy at the

age of 14. At that time I visited the public

observatory in Traiskirchen and was fascinated

by the telescopes at first sight.


My interest in astrophotography became

apparent after a short time. At that time

I made my first experiences with taking

pictures of the night sky. A few years later

the digital revolution "took place" and new

and unimagined possibilities  opened up

in astrophotography.


In 2005, a friend and I built our own observatory, which we equipped with the time for

remote imaging. In any case, astronomy and astrophotography is one of the most interesting

and beautiful hobby ever.
