Johannes Schedler is another amazing astrophotographer who gives a lot of joy to our eyes through his Panther Observatory and Chilean Advanced Robotic Telescope!

Johannes Bio:

Its very nice to see that in our astronomy community we could meet, even just by email, some amazing human beings that are very kind and are always ready to help another colleague! As well as another brilliant astrophotographers he chose, like Emil, Johannes, Leo Orazi, Sara Wager, and countless humans beings spreaded all over the world - the way to good will, to be humble and help less fortunate hobbyists, just like me, a poor dreamer! :-)

I think they chose his path because they are clever and enlightened beings... and because they learned that we are nothing, even less in a hospital bed, just star dust, given the gigantic dimension of the Cosmos...and the humility gave all this men and girls the gift to be great even in your tiny planet...

Well... thanks a lot for all Astrobin guys and girls motivation...!!! Hope you enjoy this Antennae Galaxy processing !!
