About Me

me First of all, thank you very much for visiting my website. I really appreciate it. I hope you enjoy browsing my website.

My name is Takayuki Yoshida. I live in Takarazuka city, a pleasant suburban district in Japan. I used to take astronomical photos mostly from my backyard. However, the light pollution has gotten worse every year. So, I decided to visit to countrysides to take better pictures. I wish I have a remote observatory somewhere like New Mexico.

I had my first contact with astronomy when my uncle showed me the planet Jupiter through a telescope. That is a kind of a precious memory for me.

Now I'm working as a photograher in Japan. In some of my works, I'm writing articles about digital cameras in astronomical magazines and teaching beginners how to take pictures of nightsky on TV. I've also supervised Nikon astronomical website.

My astrophotographs have been published in various magazines in Japan. Overseas, my Andromeda photo was featured in the Universe Today and my IC4603 was featured in APOD. It was a great honor.

I intend to keep taking a photograph of celestial object, the beatutiful wonders in the Universe.
