Without a doubt astronomy has become one of my greatest passions. Since 1984 I am observing the starry sky. It started with an Eschenbach 20×30 monocular telescope and continued a few years later with a 4,5″ Newtonian mirror scope which gave me impressive views of our moon, Jupiter and Saturn.

My astronomical interests are manifold, ranging from observing to photographing. Mainly I am visual observer, watching the planets of our solar system such as Mars, Jupiter and Saturn as well as observing deep sky objects such as star clusters, galactic nebulae and galaxies.

And the passion for amateur astronomy is still alive.
