  Transit of Venus Across the Sun on 8 June 2004. 1/30 second exposure with Celestron 8" telescope at f/10  on Kodak Gold 200 film.
  On 8 June 2004, observers throughout Europe, as well as most of Asia and Africa, will be able to witness a very rare astronomical phenomenon when the planet Venus lines up directly between Earth and the Sun. Seen as a small black disk against the bright Sun, Venus will take about 6 hours to complete its crossing of the Sun's face - known as a 'transit'.

Celestron 8" with tele-extender for eyepiece projection photography. Telescope Tele-Extender is used for high-power lunar, solar and planetary photography as well as for extreme terrestrial photography.

  Jupiter and Saturn. 1/60th second exposure with Celestron 8" telescope with 10mm eyepiece projection  using Kodak Gold 400 film.
  The Comet Hale-Bopp. This shot was taken piggyback using a 135mm telephoto lens at f2.5 for 20 minutes. Film Kodak Royal Gold 200, camera Zenith E.
  The Comet Hale-Bopp was one of the brightest comets this century, and perhaps the brightest intrinsically in human history. If only our closest approach wasn't 100 million miles, this comet may have been visible in daylight. Even at 100 million miles and with the tail pointing mostly away from the Earth, it was a wonder to behold. This shot was taken piggyback using a 135mm telephoto lens at f2.5 for 20 minutes. My best shot of Hale Bopp.

Cameras Canon EOS 50E, and Canon EOS 350D.

  Here is a close up shot of the nucleus area of Hale-Bopp taken through a Celestron 8 telescope (with focal reducer f/6.3). Exposure was about 12 seconds on Fujicolor NPH 400 film.  Taken from Mt. Ucka in Istria.

Photos are presented to croatian and international public thru the  many magazines.
