My name is Matheus Soares, also known as Caneca. I am a Brazilian, currently living in Amsterdam, and a Software Engineer.
I have always loved to see the universe, the stars, the galaxies and try to understand it. I felt whole when I understood why we are star dust, and how from Hydrogen and Helium, all else came to exist.
I decided to start something that I have always wanted (for almost 10 years now), that is taking pictures of all this beauty. As the title presumes, I am red-green colorblind and I cannot distinguish much the colors of the stars, nor edit the images to look nice to someone else’s eyes. But my pictures will be as best as I can for my own colorblind eyes.
I am making this blog so I can keep track of my progress in this interesting field that is the Astrophotography and to talk about that I learned, discovered, imagined or experienced in the journey.
Sit tight and enjoy the ride.
