*Application for master thesis *+CERN

Completed and submitted my application for a master thesis as a technical student at #CERN this week. Now I have to wait till June to hopefully get some positive feedback. Anyway it's already quite nice to have it sent. Please keep your fingers crossed :)

Yep, would be great :)

I think the chances to get possitive feedback shouldn't be that bad, as far as I've heard.

Also, I think there aren't "so many" students finishing their technical studies each year in Austria, and for those who do, the percentage who are applying might be also small.

Exciting months till June :)

Solar Eclipse March 20th 2015

Here's a little preview from what I've done this morning! Photographing the #partial #solar #eclipse with my 8" #Meade 2000mm f/10 telescope as well as with my #Canon EF 100-400mm lense. Pretty excited about the final results. Will try to put together a bestof selection from all the 100 shots I've taken from start to end which I will show you the next days, so be prepared ;)

Anyone else here who has got some digital images from the eclipse?

Millstatt By Night In Winter

Here's one shot from yesterday night! Let's hope the best for tomorrow. Clear skies, cold night and more snow would be nice!

Some months passed, since I've been there the last time! Just wanted to check the location, how it looks like these days, 2 days before New Year's Eve cause my plan is to view the fireworks from across the lake. The halfmoon is right in the back illuminating the surroundings, pole star somewhere up in the middle. Let's hope that weather will be on my side in 2 days too. Doing a time-lapse video might also be an option, cause already some frames, I took today, look pretty nice as the clouds pass by!

Nocky Mountains In Winter View To Kaning

Taken on December 29th, 2014 during a walk in the morning, after the first snow, all over the country, this year. Just some 10cm of snow here, but at least now it feels more like winter, as it is getting colder too. Hope for much more snow to come the next few weeks!

Partial Solar Eclipse March 20th 2015 Europe

This is my setup!

Ordered me a solar filter just a few weeks ago, got it on Thursday and works pretty nice, already took a few shots as weather is nice too these days, hope it will be like that in 2 weeks too when we here in Europe can view the partial solar eclipse!

Oh and yes, with 2000mm focal length it's not possible to get the full sun in one frame, so I need to do a pano!

Orbital Motion Lake Millstatt In Winter

I've been there at New Year's Eve and a few days before too and found out that the celestial pole is right above the mountains form that POV there, so I spontaneously used the first day of this year for another long exposure session. Luckily we got clear blue starry skies for a few hours in the evening.

Start: 10:30 pm
End:  00:55 am

161 images stacked for the final result with #Canon EOS 60D + #Walimex 8mm f/3.5 50" | ISO100

Careers at +CERN

Has anyone of you already visited CERN in +SWITZERLAND or even worked there?

Have made me an account there yesterday, uploaded some documents and entered some information about me.

Think it would be a great experience doing a final project with one of the world's leading science organizations! Not sure how high the chance is to get accepted, cause I think the number of applicants around the world must be quite high and so quite some competition?!

Would be great to hear/read some experiences!
