It was time to try something new! On my last trip to La Palma I just had to test how well it works to mix RGB with H-alpha data. As expected, it is a hit! The extra detail you can see with an h-alpha filter is incredible. The test object was of course the center of our milky way, which is great to see on La Palma.

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.
