​Planetary AstroPhotography

Welcome to the website of the ROSA Observatory. You will not find any images of domes or structures that can be called an observatory. You will find the work of many nights with long hours in front of a laptop computer, trying to refine what I have learned from my experience but most importantly, what I have learned from other astrophotographers that have taught me most of what I know. This is the reason I decided to create this website. Our community of amateur astronomers or should I say, Non-professioinal astronomers, is an interesting group where we all share our knowledge. It is a big family of hundreds of thousands of individuals that are fascinated by the night sky and who in most cases share what they know so that others can follow in their footsteps. Many times I have seen people dedicate many hours to write about their experiences or to simply sit on a forum to help a fellow astronomer to improve or understand something. I have been lucky to know some of them personally and for this reason I owe to this community. Therefore I am giving back the few things that I know. So feel free to contact me with any questions or simply browse the images, links and documents here, the home of the ROSA Observatory!!
