EAPOD features a daily selected image of the universe produced (or significantly contributed) by European astrophotographers.

Goals

Deep sky photography, as a special area of astrophotography, requires a great deal of time spent in preparation and planning. As a result of the unusually long exposition time needed, ideally I am able to shoot one object per month, twelve a year at the most. However, as the weather is not always on my side, my dreams often don’t realise, but remain plans for future years. This means that I must plan ahead and prepare detailed shooting plans for 3 and 6-month periods, taking into consideration the travel routes of objects, climate conditions and the Moon phases. Not to mention my private appointments as well…..

Upcoming projects:

  • Southern Milky Way
  • LMC
  • Polaris area
  • M81 and M82

CHRISTMAS CLOUD OCEAN

2016 Christmas was beastly cold, with dense mists that came swirling up – it is familiar in the Carphatian Basin this time of year. But 5 kilometers away in straight flight from my home on Pilis-top the sky is brilliant blue and the clouds looks like the ocean…
