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. A lot has changed since then. I am currently operating my remote observatory in Styria. At regular intervals I "treat myself" to a bit of variety and take pictures under the perfect sky in Namibia.


In any case, astronomy and astrophotography is one of the most interesting and beautiful hobby ever.
