Astrophotography

CTB1 (MEDLAR NEBULA)

CTB1 is a nearby supernova remnant (SNR) with an apparent diameter of about a half a degree (about the same size as a Full Moon).

GEM CLUSTERS

The Perseus Double Cluster and the Coathanger are very different in many ways, but they are also very beautiful objects.

DRONE

NEW DRONE PHOTOS

From the hills of Balaton Highlands to Adriatic Sea… we can enjoy the beautiful view of the nature.

BALATON SUNSET

NEW AERIAL VIDEOS

I believe you do not need to visit exotic places to capture beautiful moments. Somtimes the best shots are to be found locally, even around your home. Silence, mist, sunlight, fog, sailboats, ruins, birds, water, hills.

Former projects

THE PLEIADES

The Pleiades also known as The Seven Sisters and Messier 45, is an open star cluster containing middle-aged, hot B-type stars in the north-west of the constellation Taurus.

CYGNUS DUST

Less photographed area of the Swan constellation. Huge star field, wavy dust, faint nebulas.

BUBBLE AND M52

To the eye, this cosmic composition nicely balances the Bubble Nebula with open star cluster M52.

PICKERING’S TRIANGLE

Pickering’s Triangle is part of the Cygnus Loop supernova remnant, which includes the famous Veil Nebula. 3 panels mosaic image.

River of Stars

A special video project, a kind of summary from my astrophotos of the last decade. It is only 4 minutes with 4k resolution. We are many amateurs who enjoy cosmos at home, relaxing, while putting a whole serious amount of work on the table. This is how the 2010s looked to me.

Embedded in a complex of interstellar dust and gas and blown by the winds from a single, massive O-type star, the Bubble Nebula, also known as NGC 7635, is a mere 10 light-years wide. On the other hand, M52 is a rich open cluster of around a thousand stars.

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…
