First of all, thank you very much for visiting my online gallery. I created this site because I used to share my photographies
on all kind of image uploading sites. It looked awful and it was very hard to find images and share them with others. This
way I get to display all my images in a metodical and organized way. I live in Bucharest, RO. and I got interested in
astronomy in 2003 or 2004 when i recieved as a gift an astronomy book ("Widows to the Universe"). I then started to
search the web for astronomy topics, read lots of books, weekly visits to the Popular Observatory Amiral Vasile Urseanu in
Bucharest (http://www.astro-urseanu.ro/). In 2004 I got in touch with the Romanian Astronomical Society for Meteors
(http://www.sarm.ro/) and started going to astronomy camps and star parties.
My interest towards astrophotography started gradualy, as i found out that i can combine another hobby of mine,
photography, with astronomy. My first camera was a borrowed Smena, after that i bought my Praktica MLT3. In 2006 I
participated to ASTROFOTO (a romanian astrophotography competition organized by SARM), my first astrophotography
competition, followed by the 2008 and 2010 editions.
If by night I'm an eager astrophotographer, capturing images of the above, by daytime I'm a student at Biotechnology
Faculty (USAMV Bucuresti, http://biotehnologii.usamv.ro/).
