In 2012, my fascination with astronomy was sparked by a friend who invited me to stargaze with him. He had brought along his telescope and pointed it towards a bright object in the sky. As soon as I looked through the eyepiece, I was completely mesmerized. It was Jupiter! I could see the largest storm in our solar system, the great red spot, and the Galilean moons on either side of the planet. That moment opened my eyes to the vastness and beauty of the universe. It was mind-blowing to see the details of a planet 700 million kilometers away.

Over the years, I have continued to pursue my passion for observing the universe. Initially, I focused on visual astronomy with various telescopes, but eventually, I became more interested in astrophotography. In 2019, a friend and I decided to build our observatory in Varkaus, Finland. It was an exciting and fulfilling project, as we could share our passion for astrophotography and accommodate multiple telescopes. The observatory is situated in one of the darkest areas of the province and is almost entirely free of light pollution. Next to it lies the Taurus Hill observatory complex, which belongs to the amateur astronomical association Warkauden Kassiopeia.
As a side project during the summer months when astrophotography is not possible I chase storms around the Finnish countryside. Every year I spend around 5000 kilometers in my car just to see the power of natures most fierce phenomena.

The passion for the skies has leaded me on a life-long journey that you, dear reader, can follow on this website. Enjoy!
