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

QHY 168C

After testing QHY IC8300 I am very glad of this opportunity to take shots with the new QHY camera. 168C has a full frame size 16MP, 14bit CMOS sensor IMX071. It has 3.2e low readout noise.
