Yesterday and nowadays Amateur Astronomers
this page is under construction
The people on this page, are those who have carried out an important role in some of the observatories described in this site. Sometimes in more than one. Some of them have became a legend, among amateur astronomers, for their final results, for the incredible targets reached in the course of the years, for a whole life dedicated to the realization of a dream. Some of them have left this world. They all have in common the great passion for research and knowledge and the desire to see far hahead, through the telescope or by whatever means, in order to try to understand, even in minimum part, the universe we live in.
