About

This web presence is my kind of online diary for my astronomical projects and perhaps even adventures.

After being very interested in astronomy while at school - rather saving more money for a longer period of time to buy a better telescope - I somehow "forgot" this exciting hobby after starting my business career. But at the end of the year 2013, I remembered my old hobby and re-discovered my interest in this science.

So I bought a used Meade LX200 Classic 10" SC  - the former scope of my dreams during school - I got to know the advantages and amenities fo GoTo and electric slewing - but I had to find out: For astro-photography, with digital imaging and processing techniques, I have to learn almost everything from scratch, again.

This page serves as a place to document my newly acquired knowledge and skills - for myself but also for anyone interested.
