Hello everybody ...

You'll find on this website a part of my true passion. All these hours and nights I spent to contemplate the beauty of the starry sky has brought myself, little by little, to the creation of this website. I have imaginated so many planets and worlds far away from here, that I decided one day to put all my work and a part of my outer space journeys on a website (from 2004 - when I began to make digital astrophotography) .

As an unknown author said "The beauty is not in the object but in the eyes of the beholder".

Furthermore this website is a message to the people who lived inside big cities and hesitate to make digital astrophotography. I have got some simple instruments (Schmidt-Cassegrain C8 + 80 mm achromatic triplet lenses + EQ6 mount) and some several numeric devices (APN Canon 350D + CCD PL1). In addition, 90% of the photos are made from my balcony situated at 8 km from the Eiffel Tower (as the crow flies).
The results are a strong argument that this passion is not reserved only to the people who lived in the campaign far from cities, but people like me, even with cheap instruments. Surely if it is impossible to get the same results than the very skilled amateur astronomers living in a very dark sky, but it is really possible to do very interesting things in suburbs of big cities.

Unfortunately, I miss time, my job takes me a lot (time and effort), and my family as well. The time I am spending on my passion is short and limited, but each time I dive in my stars, I'm the happiest man of the world...

Each successful photo is a true delight which broaden my universe and my knowlegde of this beautiful world ...

Unfortunately the most part of my explanations are in French - leave me a message if you have some questions...

Have a good trip.
