Dear friends,


Sorry for the "bis repetita", but here is another view of Paris with a different lighting than the previous one (scifi like here). I liked here the river, the bridge (passerelle Debilly) and the yellow veins of the city....


Probably everything has been said about the telescope, but I know that some flickr(girls)friends have great sense of observation and imagination... :-)))


Hugs! :-)

The Sardinia Radio Telescope (SRT, Lat. 39°29'34"N - Long. 9°14'42" E) is a major radio astronomical facility almost ready for outstanding scientific observations. It represents a flexible instrument for Radio Astronomy, Geodynamical studies and Space science, either in single dish or VLBI mode. SRT combines one of the largest steerable collecting area all over the World with state-of-the-art technology to enable high efficiency up to the 3-mm frequency band.

Nothing extraordinary about this post except that this might be my last upload for this month as tomorrow onwards, I'll be on vacation to India for Diwali.


Since I have become so addicted to flickr so I still donno how I'll manage without visiting your uploads and obviously without uploading some new pics :)

But I think, it is a much deserved break from my routine busy life. I hope you have a great month...Keep clicking and keep uploading. I'll be back to visit them as soon as possible. :)

And yes, Wish u all a very happy and prosperous Diwali.


For my friends who don't know what Diwali is, here is a description from Wiki:


'Diwali (also spelled Devali in certain regions) or Deepawali, popularly known as the "festival of lights", is an important festival in Hinduism, Jainism, and Sikhism, celebrated for different reasons, occurring between mid-October and mid-November. For Hindus, Diwali is one of the most important festivals of the year and is celebrated in families by performing traditional activities together in their homes. For Jains, Diwali marks the attainment of moksha or nirvana by Mahavira in 527 BC. For Sikhs, Diwali is celebrated as Bandhi Chhor Diwas (The Celebration of Freedom), and celebrates the release from prison of the sixth guru, Guru Hargobind, who also rescued 52 Hindu kings held captive by Mughal Emperor with him in the Gwalior Fort in 1619.

Deepavali is an official holiday in India, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Myanmar, Mauritius, Guyana, Trinidad & Tobago, Suriname, Malaysia, Singapore, and Fiji.

The name "Diwali" is a contraction of "Deepavali" (Sanskrit: दीपावली Dīpāvalī), which translates into "row of lamps". Diwali involves the lighting of small clay lamps (diyas or dīpas) in Sanskrit: दीप) filled with oil to signify the triumph of good over evil. During Diwali, all the celebrants wear new clothes and share sweets and snacks with family members and friends.

Diwali commemorates the return of Lord Rama, along with Sita and Lakshmana, from his 14-year-long exile and vanquishing the demon-king Ravana. In joyous celebration of the return of their king, the people of Ayodhya, the Capital of Rama, illuminated the kingdom with earthen diyas and by bursting firecrackers.'

A view of Prague from the Hradčany. Prague is soo beautiful! And now I try to make some HDR. This is one of my firsts attempt. Soo I hope you like it.

Pia helped me with the editing, soo it's partially her photo, too. =)

Hope you had a nice weekend. My holidays are over. School. -.-' Haha. =D

One of the Auxiliar Telescopes of Paranal Observatory with some well known objects of the southern sky.


Feel free to comment my pics or contact me - in English or German.

I am very thankful for every constructive criticism that helps me to get better!

Me, out imaging in the Pawnee Grasslands with the telescope. It is a peaceful hobby, and I enjoy the quiet solitude. I like this time of year as the northern Milky Way rises parallel to the horizon in the early mornings.

Taken at the National Solar Telescope @ Kitt Peak, Arizona

through the eyepiece of a small telescope carrying h alpha filter. Can see some solar flares.

First image using my new solar telescope that I feel is interesting enough to share on Flickr.


This image is actually a combination of two photos, one of the surface and another of the edge. Both of these photos were separated into their RGB layers, tweaked, recombined, and then stacked.



Telescope = Lunt LS60THa/B1200CPT, which is a 60mm refractor telescope with a 500mm focal length, 12mm blocking filter, and an internal etalon allowing a <0.75 Angstrom bandpass at the Hydrogen Alpha wavelength of light, 656.28 nm.

Mount = Skywatcher EQ3-2 unguided.

Lens = 12.4mm Plossi.

Camera = Canon 450d.

Exposures = 1/6 sec for edge, 1/30 sec for surface.

This telescope is part of the Multi-Element Radio Linked Interferometer Network (MERLIN) is an interferometer array of radio telescopes spread across England. The array is run from Jodrell Bank Observatory in Cheshire by the University of Manchester on behalf of STFC as a National Facility.


This Telescope is about 3 miles away form my house, yet i have never been there, and Mondays episode of stargazing live inspired Myself, Andi and Mizzi to get our kit together and go and trail it.


25 min trail, my camera was set up for an hour but knocking the focus when de-fogging means the whole stack wasn't usable :(


50 30second image + 1 lighting shot as the telescope is constantly moving. Lit with a LED LENSER P17


View my Short startrail of the Lovell telescope (Jodrell bank) Which is the telescope stargazing live is broadcast from.

Great night out after late shift with Mike Ridley who introduced me to these two awesome giant telescope sculptues in consett. They are massive, 15ft+ high or more, each one having legs from different animals. Very bizzar but brilliant to see, even at 3am.

Sadley the clouds rolled in after 30mins so scuppered the chances of more star shots.

The moon through a telescope eyepiece using afocal projection.

Our only real stop on day 1 was at the radio telescope just outside of Parkes in New South Wales. The dish was made famous in the great Aussie movie "The Dish", which told the somewhat fictionalized story of the Parkes Observatory's role in relaying live television of man's first steps on the moon during the Apollo 11 mission in 1969. It was the top grossing film in Australia in 2000.

We arrived about 20 minutes before closing time so just had a short time to take a few shots including the obligatory one of the family in front of the dish. This is an HDR version from straight on and as far back as I could get without including the fence in the foreground, another shot where I needed a wider lens, I could not quite get the top of the dish in the frame.


New telescopes have been installed at various spots along the pier, just in time for the summer tourist season
