Since 1996

Well come to my gallery. I am one of the many amateur astrophographers in Japan. Although my observatory is located in the urban area of Tokyo, the magnificent dynamic range of a 16bits CCD camera and the new image processing technology have allowed me to shoot the deep sky images. Since 1990, most of these pictures are published in various astronomy magazines. These works were mainly done with my 31cm (12 inches) Newtonian on my house.
Nowadays, times have changed, and it is now possible to take pictures with telescopes overseas by remote control. In 2023, I started remote astro-photography, so I decided to completely revise this page and mainly introduce images taken remotely.
