Welcome to my site dedicated to astrophotography!
Human beings have always been amazed looking at the starry sky at night. However, when Galileo Galilei first pointed a telescope to the firmament, over 400 years ago, incredible new discoveries surprised humanity: magnificent mountains and lunar valleys, moons of Jupiter, phases of Venus and hundreds of thousands of new stars ever observed. The telescope, a relatively simple instrument, changed since then and forever our conception of the universe and our position in time and space.
Since those days where visual observations were recorded with pencil and paper, the technological leaps allows today to register digitally through long-term exposure, much more then what the human eye will ever seen. This possibilities to reveal those mysteries are the ones that inspire my hobby.
This site is dedicated to show my work photographing the Universe beautiful nature from Chile's skies.
