About me and my Astrophoto-Blog: My name is Thomas Hanrath, I live in Koblenz, Germany. As most other people taking astrophotos today, i had a small telescope when i was a child.

At the end of March, the famous Monkey Head Nebula was my target. I took the photos from my backyard and stumbled over a lot of problems i had to solve and fix them in PixInsight.
Two important evenings for me. I had a lot of time for exposures and collected a lot of data, but the result shows where to focus on in the next months.
Clear Skies 6, 7 and a little bit of the 5th. This photo is the result of 5 hours exposure time collected on 3 evenings. A 4th evening was senseless due to some Sahara dust in Europe.
The Triangulum Galaxy – A picture stacked out of exposures from a single evening. Some stumbling was mandatory …
On the third evening i focused on the Andromeda Galaxy and I used PixInsight the 1st time in postprocessing.
7 Days after my first evening with my Vixen ed80sf, on February the 20th 2021, i had another clear sky. Again, i had to test and try a lot.
An evening in february in 2021. The first evening under clear skies with my new telescope. The first time hunting for deep sky objects.
The very first photo with an deep sky object was the Orion Nebula. It felt lika a miracle.
Mars, my very first object i shot through a telescope.
