I was born in 1967 and live in Bremen located in northern germany. I’ve been involved in in amateur astronomy since I was 12 years old. I made my first photo experience with a SLR camera on a standard tripod. This was during the era of baked Technical Pan 2415. My engagement run out with leaving school.
I reactivated amateur astronomy in early 2010s thinking astronomy could be also be an experience for my sons – only for visual observing, of course. But they didn’t care anything about that nerdy stuff… At the end I’m fighting the battle of material again trying to catch photons in order to get pictures from our sky.
