Ars poetica
Coming soon

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:

  • M63
  • M64
  • Narrowband parts of Milky Way
  • Aerial photos

GALAXY ON EDGE

My recent picture of magnificent Needle Galaxy NGC 4565 is on NASA Astronomy Picture of the Day (APOD). Is our Galaxy this thin? We believe so. Magnificent spiral galaxy NGC 4565 is viewed edge-on from planet Earth.
