About Me

✨🔭 + ☕ = ❤️

First of all, I love coffee. If you're a coffee lover as well or just want to talk about space and/or its tech related stuff, or both? Send an email to jeroen.boumans@gmail.com, or hit me up via Astrobin, Mastodon or Reddit.

And secondly, please allow me to introduce myself. I'm Jeroen Boumans (36), currently working as a system developer at Hello Sunshine and Stimuliz.

In 2022 I decided to buy my first astrophotography gear: the Sky-Watcher Star Adventurer; a star tracker. Taking this for a spin introduced me to the steep learning curve of astrophotography.
Back then, I shot my frames using an unmodified Canon 70D DSLR and a simple tripod without "GOTO"-features. Finding your targets with this kind of setup was a bit of a pain since the tracker was easily shifted away from the north celestial pole during alignment with your target. Also the amount of noise for DSLR's is inconsistent during your capturing since the outside temperature might change during a session. Shooting calibration frames should also happen during these temperatures.

After reading many reviews and blogs and watching many youtube video's I was determined to get into the hobby more seriously. This lead me to assembling a new setup and kickstart my journey from there.


UNDERSAMPLED.com is my journal and excuse for creating images with passion but keep the door open for improvements along the way.

Also, I'm using a RedCat15 and an ASI533mm Pro, so 🥲 ... drizzle time! Compatibility graph by astronomy.tools

If you're a beginner as well, my journal might come in handy for you in the future. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you've any questions/remarks. In the meantime, I wish you clear skies!

Regards, Jeroen
