This picture was taken on the "Pico de la Cruz" on La Palma. You can see me with my camera under the starry sky. Very clearly to see is the arc of the Milky Way which stretches beautifully across the sky. In the distance is also still tenerife to recognize and you can see impressively the influence of its light pollution. La Palma is much better positioned and offers a better view of the stars!
Jakob Sahner is a 21 year old German astrophotographer who came into contact with the fascination of space early in his childhood. Very early he began to make projects with image and video editing programs and after graduating from high school he completed an apprenticeship as a photo and media technical assistant. The subject has grabbed him like an addiction although he had no knowledge about this hobby. He just wanted to do it and try it out! In the now more than 4 years he has become a worldwide known astrophotographer and has developed his skills from normal landscape astrophotography to deepsky photography.
