About Aries Productions

Aries Productions was founded in April 2017 by Mabula Haverkamp (drs. M.Sc. E.M.W.P. Haverkamp).

It’s main goal is to build a company for Astro Pixel Processor (APP) as it’s main product. And to provide the astrophotography community worldwide, with a new and innovative application for processing Deep Sky images.

Since the launch of Astro Pixel Processor, on the 2nd of June 2017, the company has been growing consistently. Now in 2020, a couple of years later, APP is being used by 1000s of astronomers worldwide on a daily basis, from absolute beginners to professional astronomers. Astrophysics students at different universities across the globe are being taught astronomical data processing using APP.

To be able to support all of it’s users and to be able to keep improving APP, we are expanding the company to

  • speed-up the development of Astro Pixel Processor and
  • to provide better and faster customer support

As a first step in expanding Aries Productions,  Vincent Groenewold joined the company in October 2018 as a moderator on the forum, and he is now also working, besides Mabula Haverkamp, on the development of the application as well.

And… we are now happy to announce that in November 2020, Wouter van Reeven, officially joined the Astro Pixel Processor team as well, he has started as a moderator on our forum. Wouter has a Master’s degree in Astrophysics (2001) from the University of Leiden in The Netherlands.

Going forward, our goal is to expand the company with  addtional moderators on the forum and programmers to speed-up development of APP as an application.
