About me

Mi nombre es Eduardo Schaberger Poupeau, nací el 27 de abril de 1973 en Rafaela, provincia de Santa Fe, Argentina. Desde que era niño, me apasiona la astronomía, y esta pasión ha sido alimentada por diversos eventos como el auge de la exploración espacial, las misiones de los transbordadores, la aparición del cometa Halley (que tuve la oportunidad de observar) y la supernova de 1987, entre otros.

Throughout my life, I have continued to nurture my love for gazing at the starry sky, even with the naked eye.

En 2006, comencé mi carrera como fotógrafo profesional, especializándome en retratos de niños y familias. Sin embargo, desde el principio, también dirigí mi cámara hacia el cielo, capturando por ejemplo, la visita del impresionante cometa Mc Naught a principios del año 2007.

It was in early 2015, with the passage of Comet Lovejoy, that my dedication to astrophotography intensified significantly. I have been learning this discipline on my own.

In 2017, I acquired my first H-alpha solar telescope, captivated by the images I could capture through it. Gradually, I faced the inherent challenges of solar photography and learned about capture techniques, processing, and the ideal equipment for obtaining the best results. As I immersed myself more and more in this field, I realized that solar photography was my true passion. Since 2020, 90% of my work has focused on capturing the beauty of the sun.

Thanks to my dedication to solar photography, I have gained worldwide recognition. My photographs have been published on prominent science portals, websites, newspapers, and other media outlets. In the course of 2023, one of my images captured global attention and went viral after being published on March 10 on the Space Weather website. For approximately two months, it was widely disseminated, being shared by science portals, news outlets, and prestigious print and online media in various countries, from the United States to Guam, through the United Kingdom, France, Spain, and many others. In my country, it also caused a great impact, and the Todo Noticias (TN) website published an extensive article about my work in solar photography, which was echoed by television channels, radios, and other national media.

On September 14, 2023, my photograph "A Sun Question" was selected as the winner of the "Our Sun" category in the world's most prestigious astrophotography contest, organized by the Royal Museums of Greenwich in the United Kingdom. In this edition, more than 4000 photographs from 65 different countries, sent by the best astrophotographers in the world, participated. Additionally, three of my photographs were selected as finalists and are currently part of the Astronomy Photographer of the Year book, as well as a photographic exhibition at the Greenwich Maritime Museum.

A fines del 2023, la prestigiosa revista científica Nature, fundada en 1869, eligió mi fotografía “A Sun Question” como una de las fotografías científicas del año.

El 17 de febrero de 2024, fotografié una rara prominencia solar de más de 200.000 km de altura, la cual rápidamente captó la atención a nivel mundial y desencadenó una verdadera avalancha de notas en los medios más prestigiosos del mundo. La BBC de Londres y BBC Mundo (en español) destacaron mi trabajo en fotografía solar. También tuve una nota en vivo para el canal France 24 en español y participé en el reconocido programa Objetivo Planeta de la televisión española (RTVE). Además, esta fotografía fue seleccionada como una de las imágenes científicas del mes de febrero por la revista Nature del Reino Unido.
Este reconocimiento mundial también atrajo el interés de los principales medios de noticias de Argentina, generando extensas notas en TN, Clarín, La Nación, Radio Nacional y otros medios y portales. Asimismo, participé en el programa Fenómenos por la pantalla de TN y en dos ocasiones en el Programa Re Despiertos (en vivo), también por TN.
