On this private website I would like to share my hobby, astronomy, with you. I, that is Ralf Figiel, living in Erding, Bavaria. With over fifty years of age, I have accumulated quite a few leisure activities. But astronomy, or more precisely astrophotography, now takes up a large part of my free time. And that's what I write about here - always with a twinkle in my eye.
I do not claim to be a scientist, nor do I distinguish myself through groundbreaking knowledge. No, I pass on what I experience. That which has helped me. And that which I find wonderful and fascinating, that which always captivates me - our night sky.
Self-ironic, amateurish and simply dedicated to the normally interested. Just a star album for anyone. And anyone should also be able to enjoy our nocturnal sky.
By the way, I consciously do without all the social media stuff like Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, TikTok, etc. I don't do that. I don't do the stress around self-promotion to myself. I just want to give you and me a place where we can relax and enjoy heaven and document our progress together. Completely without newsletters or personal data etc. We really don't need that here.
I am happy to provide information - and to show interested people the sky in my garden observatory from its most beautiful side, weather and time permitting. Simply get in touch via the navigation entry "Contact".
Now have fun and of course: clear skies!
