Via Lactea Observatory

Description

Almost 18 years ago,i embarked on a very special, difficult and demanding journey in the world of astronomy and especially in astrophotography.
Through the light pollution of Athens, the whole venture seemed almost impossible.

Watching the first shadows of nebulae and galaxies appearing on the computer screen, the pictures of planets with their moons floating into space and the spectacular formations of craters and canyons of our moon, i realized that this is was makes me feel complete, that this is what I love doing.
After long hours of studying and investing a lot of time and money, i believe that i have managed to have a decent course in the field of astrophotography. The only problem that was holding me behind was the lack of a permanent observatory.

Completely by chance i had the opportunity to meet two lovely people , Kostas and Spyros Tsekas. Without their voluntary offer, i would have never managed to full fill my dream and have my own observatory today.I would also like to thank all my friends, relatives and fellow villagers that helped me complete the observatory.
And of course I would like to thank my wife Alice that without her encouragement and understanding I wouldn't even have dreamed of turning my dream into reality.

The Observatory is located in Kristallopigi Paramithias in Thesprotia , where I have settled permanently with my family the last two years. The purpose of the observatory is the dissemination of amateur astronomy in the province of Epirus, through seminars and night sky watching.

Good luck to all with clear skies
