Concluding thanks to all in the name of Astronomers Without Borders and TWAN for supporting this tour.
Without your support the visit of Babak A. Tafreshi would not have been possible. I think, all who know him and his ideas now personally can understand and follow his great ideas. Sharing and living the idea - "ONE PEOPLE, ONE SKY " - may be a great goal for the future. The Austrian Astronomers have proofed their hospitality and shown what can be done by sharing the same enthusiasm and idealism for a beautiful subject, like astronomy is.With this in mind I hope that my arrangement for this visit could be a little contribution for this global vision. In addition to it, during this tour I got the impression that a part of Austrian Astronomers are becoming a little bit more closer again.
For the future some possible good ideas are in sight (exhibitions, TWAN-meetings....). About this I will tell if these things are ready for realization. And if anybody dedicated astronomer, amateur astronomer and Deep Space photographer appreciates the TWAN-style-photography-techniques he can do some contributions to this great worldwide platform representing our small country Austria. Now Babak knows Austria and he can easier allocate pictures and I think he likes our small country and he enjoyed his stay here.
