  I fell in love with astronomy in 1997 when I explored the first time the night sky together with my son using a simple Tasco reflector. After   upgrading to a C11 I built my own 3m observatory beside my house 25 km south   of Graz in summer 2000. From 2001 I moved to astrophotography first using the  Canon DSLRs for deep sky imaging. Digging into the powerful capabilities of   Photoshop processing I was pushing the limits of deep sky digicam imaging.

In   2004 I bought the newly released STL-11000 CCD camera and consequently   explored extended deep sky objects such as nebulas using the wide corrected   field of my TMB-105. In 2005 I received my 16" Cassegrain from P. Keller  featuring dual focal length imaging at f/3 and f/10. The following years I   concentrated on high resolution imaging.

After enjoying several times the  dark Namibian sky from 2004 to 2008 during astro-photography trips I decided to team up with Philipp to plan a remote observatory under premium skies, a project that took several years to realize.
