welcome

Welcome to my personal webpage. On this site you’ll find my astrophotography work and information about my professional profile and collaborations.

I am Aleix Roig. I live in Prades (Tarragona, Catalonia – Spain) where I have the Astrocat Observatory.

I work in astronomy management and outreach at Parc Astronòmic Muntanyes de Prades @parcastroprades and Mizar Xperience @mizarxp. Our project focuses on astrotourism and the protection of the dark sky.

I would like to thank my wife and my family for all their support, and to all the people that inspired and helped me along the way. Now more than ever “if we have seen further than others, it is by standing upon the shoulders of giants” (Sir Isaac Newton).

Support my work!

If you enjoyed this website and want to help me continue with my work, please feel free to buy, just for a few pennies, one or several of my images.

 

The price does not reflect the amount of effort involved in each one of the images. Some of them implied weeks, months and even years of hard work. With your purchase I will be able to continue capturing photons of our amazing universe.

Cygnus, the wide field magic line

The Cygnus constellation hosts some of the most amazing deep sky objects thanks to its location just on the galactic plane. It also features an asterism called the Northern Cross. This constellation can be easily detected by naked eye from suburban skies during the...
