About Álvaro Ibáñez Pérez

I'm a spanish astrophotographer. Around 2012 I buy my first telescope (70/700 achromatic refractor) and my first Canon DSLR camera and I started taking pictures of the sky and beeing doing it ever since. Currently I have a Takahashi FSQ106ED telescope and a monochrimatic ccd (Atik 460ex). Constantly I avoid light pollution in my city, Madrid, and I have to travel more than 200km usually to take photographs of quality.
