The quest for the gegenschein The sun's counterglow — or gegenschein — is kind of a stargazers' legend. Every amateur astronomer has heard about it, only a few of them have actually seen it and even fewer were lucky enough to make an image of this dim and ghostlike apparition. As a fellow observer put it: "The gegenschein is certainly not a GOTO- object." Read here the story how we captured it from a remote dark-sky site and how you can find it, too.
