This month I have started studying physics in Ljubjana. I really enjoyed this first week, the courses are great and interesting, schoolmates are OK, we have a lot of fun with my friends from MART I am living with. In fact my studying program is astrophysics, but the first year there is no real difference between astrophysics and physics, more interesting courses follow next years.

Because I am in Ljubljana most of the time now, I have decided to take my telescope with me, so I will be able to go to some pretty dark places near Vrhnika at the night, capturing the sky. I haven’t shown the picture I have made about two weeks ago of Pelican nebula, so I am attaching it now to this post. I really like it, it is made from my backyard, but turned to be pretty good, despite of light pollution, because I used the light pollution filter. The long exposition adds more details in faint parts as well (total exposition of 4.2h):

Enjoy! I hope that there will be some clear night, as moon is leaving the night sky this week 🙂
