Astrophotography - A Tour to the Night Sky

This is an astronomy picture book on web. I have taken the images mainly with Celestron 8 telescope and Canon Eos 60Da camera in Kirkkonummi, years 2013-2018. The background image of this page is Great Orion Nebula Messier 42. It is a birthplace of stars at distance of 1300 light years. Below is also link to my Life on Mars study, which I presented in University of Nevada 14th of April 2018, in conference Social and Conceptual Issues in Astrobiology.
