New projects


The Needle galaxy is one of the most famous examples of spiral galaxies visible from the edge. It is seen almost exactly from its main plane.


The brightest nebula in the northern sky has been missing from my gallery. But now I have uploaded it. It’s worth looking at in hi-res, it has details.

Aerial photography


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



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


I finished a huge project with this picture. I have several telescopes, several cameras and several years of work in it since 2019. Finally finished yesterday, with this year’s series.


Reminiscent of a seahorse’s head or a familiar chess piece, the dark dust in the constellation Orion: the Horsehead Nebula.


M82 or the Cigar galaxy, shines brightly at Ha wavelengths and is remarkable for its star formation activity.

IC 349

This year, it is the picture that has excited me the most in a professional sense. It’s a very difficult subject, capturing the detail of the tiny nebulosity hiding next to the star Merope requires good equipment and a high level of technical (photo processing) skills.

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.



Universo Mágico astronomy portal has chosen my latest photo as a featured image. This is now my 11th image chosen by the site since 2017.


BEST OF 2022

Every year, the Hungarian National Geographic selects the most beautiful astrophotos. This year’s selection includes my image of Jupiter and Io.

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…

It happened earlier...


“The 1st place winner and becoming the nPAE Northern Hemisphere Astrophotography Champion 2021 is Andromeda by Lorand from Hungary.”



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.


Click and enjoy some wonderful and inviting pictures from our trips with my family. Our world is one amazing place, we tried to capture something unique from each country.
