This is a short story…

Years ago I was travelling a lot for fashion foto-shootings.It happened that I was shooting in White Sands,New Mexico.Amazing place.  One day was april more or less,start to snow in the morning (snow in the desert,amazing) so we had to quit the shooting and go back to the hotel.Very lazy day.I was on internet and I realized that was just 30 minutes by car from the hotel.We drived there,we booked an appointment with the howners that showed us all the systems,domes,computers and whatever,Was a breathtaking experience.I went back to Europe I contacted Mr.Arnie Rosner at that time driving Global Rent a Scope and I bought the wonderful T5 system.Right now everything is ruled by an amazing guy Brad Moore from Australia. is the most amazing  system in the world.You can do imaging,comet hunting,variables researche,whatever you need,you can use top of the art telescopes in different locations…anyway TRY IT!



and this is my wonderful iT5 system located in New mexico



Moon eclipse April 2014

A funny thing,I had no chance to observe the total moon eclipse of april 15th because I am in Europe and it was not visible from here.There are thousands of beautiful images on the web of the eclipse from around the world.I was taking some Cataclysmic Variables pictures during the eclipse yesterday and I realized that the weather all sky cam at in New Mexico where I have a telescope hosted was imaging the eclipse.Nothing special but you can see how low moon light is going during the maximum.Have fun


this is a normal full Moon from today


this is the Moon during maximum



Hi followers,I just wanna to apologize because I am not uploading new material.Right now I am in Hamburg where it’s raining since weeks,as soon the weather goes better I will produce new clouds material.With my remote telescope in New Mexico I am doing only variable stars research so…probably you are not interested in it (just numbers) and the Spanish scopes are not remote scopes so I should be there  🙂  I really hope for the next week to have something,When the weather turns good here we have fantastic skies and clouds.

In the meantime if you wanna have fun take a tour to the glorious

see you soon
