About me


Welcome to my website www.skyphoto.ch

I live in Switzerland near the capitol city (Bern). I work as Head of Production in a global company for active pharmaceutical substances.

I am fascinated in astronomy since my childhood. I started observing the night sky with a small 50 mm refractor with lenses made out of plastic.

In 2004 I have started digital astrophotography with a Canon EOS 20d, Borg ED101 II and "self-guiding". To capture a single frame of 5 minutes exposure time I had to check the position of the guide star by looking through a reticle eyepiece the whole time. Since 2004 I try to optimize and improve my equipment and image processing.
