Please keep in mind that astrophotography is a hobby that demands a lot of money and even more time and effort. So I have to state that the copyrights for all of my pictures are reserved. In case you'd like to use my pictures for more than just watching them, please send me an e-mail and ask for permission.
Thank you.
