Grandpre 2014


My name is Frans Lalleman born in Pijnacker / Holland in 1969,

when I was 6 years old I had my first 2.5" plastic scope and saw 

the moon from my backyard and was addicted for life.

I started my astro-photography adventure

 in 1997 when comet Hale - Bopp was prominent in the nightsky.

I started with the purchase of a small refractor,

since then my equipment has changed a lot and 

also my ability to get better photographic results.

The picture(s) above shows the light polluted sky near my home , it was taken at the Rijswijk public observatory 2012.
