Dr. Gerd Baumgarten - Luft- und Flugaufnahmen

Putting science in interesting pictures is challenging as the objects researched are usually not visual to the naked eye observer. However bringing the tools for research into the field of view gives a little insight. Here you can see the combination of 3 m long pulses of light integrated to solid beams.

Lidar and Rocket Lasers in Telescopehall
Lidar soundings at ALOMAR during the ECOMA rocket campaign 2006. The challenge of this scene is to get good depth of field with little bluring of stellar motion.
Laser beams in the telescope hall of the ALOMAR observatory. The green beams have a diameter of 20 cm, while the orange-red ones are about 1 cm.
