In July 2021 I flew with Florian Orth for 2 weeks to La Palma. During this time I had some plans, among others this picture. The Milky Way above the big telescope domes of the observatory of La Palma.
Actually, I wanted to choose a different frame with more domes, but when I saw this stone path on the way up, which fit perfectly as a foreground, I wanted to include it and blend in. Fortunately, we were also rewarded with perfect conditions on our first night! No wind, no Sahara dust and no clouds (which are very rare anyway) :)
This picture is one of my best and will definitely remain so for a long time!
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.
