Gernot Obertaxer

My name is Gernot Obertaxer and I live in a small town in Carinthia (Austria). I have been taking pictures since 2013 and when I bought the Fornax Lightrack II 4 years ago, the astro fever finally struck me. Since then, I travel with my girlfriend Lisa to the darkest night skies in the world to photograph there. Our destinations included Bryce Canyon, Death Valley, Tenerife, Lofoten, Dolomites, etc.

“The FMC-100 counterweight system is the key to the true deep sky experience. If you extend the Lightrack II with the counterweight, the precise tracking of small telescopes is no longer a problem” (Gernot Obertaxer)

My pictures are the best proof that the Fornax Lightrack II can be transported to every corner of the world and works reliably on site. I am proud to be Fornax Brand Ambassador since 2018 and look forward to the future cooperation.
Clear skies!
