David Malin is regarded as the main world expert at astronomical photography, a figure between an artist and - as he prefers to define himself - a person that, with his transversal activity, supports the progress in astronomy. The Anglo- American Observatory in New South Wales (Australia) is the privileged eye with which David scans the sky and is able to obtain breathtaking images. With his long experience in the use of differently coloured filters and of glass plates, “the man who colors stars” is able to obtain flashy-coloured images of galaxies, nebulae, planetary nebulae, and planets. And if everyday people esteem his images merely because of their esthetical value, astrophysicists have been using them to discover and study new celestial objects, among them the wellknown 1987 supernova, the first one from 1604 so near to us that we could observe it to the naked eye. This documentary shows the techniques used by David, and tells us shortly the photographer’s biography - with his atypical training -, but, over all, it presents us with a photo album with photographs so beautiful to seem false.
