Here is a brief list of my activities during these years:

  • Published several photos in astronomy and wildlife magazines, newspapers, and books

  • Taught astrophotography classes, a TWAN international workshop, and astronomy tours

  • Promoted astronomy on astronomy days and related events

  • Won first place in Marathon Messier in Iran

  • Guided astronomy tours

  • Traveled to observe many astronomy phenomena and did other amateur astronomy activities like making a telescope mirror

  • Held a fair of my works

  • Took photos for Iran's national observatory

  • Wrote articles on astronomy websites

Semnan desert - this is the morning of a very cold astrophotography session on the longest night of the year.

The first time I aimed my camera at a celestial object was Venus transit in 2004. I was in high school at that time. I have pursued every opportunity to experiment with astrophotography ever since. There have been many ups and downs, some years, I did a lot of photography, and sometimes I got busy with work and study and had less time to take photos. But one thing was consistent: I experimented and increased my knowledge. I practiced with my data, program, and test image processing algorithms at all times.


Maranjab desert - a trip to take images of reptiles. Here I decided to photograph some night sky landscapes.

Here is an example of a deconvolution algorithm that I made from scratch and worked on for several summers. It is still in progress and needs many modifications and optimization.


My name is Masoud Safari. I am an amateur astronomer and astrophotographer, and I am getting my degree in Computer Science.

I was very curious and passionate about science as a kid. I became more interested in photography, astronomy, and computers later as I grew up. These led me to try and make the perfect combination of my interests, astrophotography.



After these experiences, I decided to establish the Telescopeia website to engage with the astrophotography community, share my knowledge, and produce valuable content. I hope you find my website helpful!
