This place is in part an attempt to give some inspiration for all to watch and preserve the night sky. Light pollution is a serious threat and there are generations growing up now who never have been able to experience a truly dark sky.
Nevertheless, most of the images shown here where taken under quite light polluted conditions, showing what the amateur can do with relatively modest equipment from typical suburban areas. All images at astronomy.se were taken by me and most of them from my old observatory. We have recently relocated and I'm starting a new observatory in eastern Scania.
You will find more info about my observatory here.
