Andreas Domenico, born in 1970 in Pescara (Italy), living in Griesheim (Germany), is an amateur astronomer since 1982 and a visual deep sky observer since 1992. From 1994 to 2000 he was a member of the german Fachgruppe Deep Sky. This period also was his most active time in deep sky observing. Most of his observations and drawings were made using 8, 12 and 18 inch Newtonian telescopes. Observing sites were dark places near Breitenbuch, Unterfranken (Germany), and in the austrian alps.

Now Andreas Domenico is president of the Volkssternwarte Darmstadt, the public astronomical society of Darmstadt (www.vsda.de), for this and other reasons he quit his main activity as deep sky observer in the early 2000's.
