I love every picture that I have seen posted on this blog. The beauty of the skies caught on camera and in my favorite style, black and white. I have only gotten to look at the stars in such a way, once. In the desert I was able to see the milky way, Andromeda, and tons of other stars and constellations. I am amazed by the quality in your pictures and I look forward to seeing more in the future. Thanks a lot and keep up the good work.

It's good to hear you like my
addict... eh, hobby.

The camera is a cooled B&W one, as astro cameras usually are, doe the extra sensitivity.
Color images are made by imaging evcery color through different filter.

There is something in Grayscale images, than no color one can reach.

Best regards,
