I'm a Finnish astrophotographer and I enjoy to be able to reveal some of the hidden beauty of our Universe.

Publications for my images, NASA, National Geographic, LPOD, Sky & Telescope, Universe Today, Daily Mail, Discover Magazine, Wired Magazine and many Others.

My observatory is located in the very center of the city Oulu in Finland. Due to massive Light Pollution I mainly do Narrowband imaging of Emission Nebulae.

Terveisiä Kajaanista. Jaan mielipiteesi tähtitaivaan kuvaamisesta näillä leveysasteilla. Kiitos aivan uskomattomista kuvista. Sanattomaksi vie.
Tosi upeita kuvia! Aivan uskomattomia.
Wow! Sanattomaksi menee kun kattoo noita kuvia. Hatun nosto sinulle J-P. Maailma on ihmeellinen ja kaunis.
