I am an amateur astronomer from the Czech Republic. Several weeks ago I returned home from Chile. The two weeks I spent at ESO’s observatory at La Silla in Chile were remarkable. The weather turned out to be clement with clear skies and I, being the enthusiastic amateur astronomer I am, had to use the opportunity. One of processed images named “Zodiacal light with the Moon and Airglow” is attached. The Zodiacal light with the Moon and Aiglow was especially difficult to take because I had to use many different exposures. This image is a mosaic of three fields.č
