My name is Antonis Farmakopoulos, I live in Byronas, Athens Greece and I’ m working as a Programmer - Analyst Information Systems. My passion for astronomy goes back to my childhood. Till a few years before I was just reading books, astronomy magazines and watching documentaries on Astronomy, Astronautics and Astrophysics.
In 2006 I bought my first telescope and I started observing and shooting. But I was alone. So, shortly I felt that I have to meet people with the same interests. Hopefully I found that there are many others like me. There are sites on internet, forums and associations.
Astronomy is the science that helps us determine our place in the universe, who we are. I decided to build this site in order to help other people learn about amateur astronomy. Also you can find my Astrophotos here.
Today I have my own observatory (Mauna Keratea obs) and I’ m vice precident of the Astronomy Club “Astronomical Union of Sparta” and founding member of the Greek Astrophotographers team AVAT (AstroVox Astrophotography Team).
Thank you for visiting the site. Hope you’ ll find your tour pleasant.
