Welcome, all you visitors that are now magically attracted here from all over the world. This is the place where I will share my adventures in urban astrophotography from a 15th floor balcony in central The Hague, Netherlands, using an 8″ catadioptric telescope and a Flea3 industrial camera (feel free to have peek a into the gallery!)
Although this was the main motivation for creating the blog and the gallery in the first place, I have other interests related to image processing, computer graphics, and software development, and may also write on these things (or off-topic rants). This is my first attempt at blogging so I myself am curious to see how this will develop.
For the last 7 years, I maintained www.chrfr.de as a purist static HTML site, without PHP and using only Notepad as editor and a command line ftp client. However, the large overhead to write and publish proved to be restrictive, so the content was both limited and frequently outdated. I hope this WordPress-based blog and gallery reduces the hurdle to publish images and thoughts on a timely basis.
