Astrophotography

…are we human because we gaze at the stars or do we gaze at them because we are human?…

Once upon a time, there was a kid eager to discover the starry night wonders. Many years ago, at Christmas, in the middle of the living room, appeared a telescope: Nexstar 114GT. Thanks to it, for the first time, the eye arrived far beyond…until the Moon!

Some years later, a Newton Skywatcher 200/1000 (f/5) with a Skywatcher Synscan EQ6 mount replaced the Nexstar. It has been selected the Newton as, with its 200 mm mirror, has the capabilities to gather much more light from the deep s

The fixed location allowed the purchase of a more performing instrument such as the Ritchey-Chrétien GSO Truss 12 “, 2400 mm focal length with a 300mm mirror (f / 8).

All the pictures in this astrophotography section, are the results of many nights outside observing the deep space beauties.
