Welcome to xipteras.org
Please, relax and feel free to be guided in a dark and beautiful universe. I am the author of this site and I would like to show you the space from a modern perspective; through the "eyes" of my astronomy cameras. By collecting the starlight over long periods of time, they are able to penetrate so deep in space that they can detect faintest structures in color!
All photos in this site have been taken from my suburban area in Germany by using amateur equipment. Dedicated software packages have been used to plan the photo sessions, to control the telescope and to capture the light of the stars resulting to tons of data need further processing. The light pollution has been filtered out, all photos have been intensively processed to offer you the best night sky experience.
Aside from these timeless night sky views, I would like to present you my daytime photography of some beautiful places I visited recently.
