The technique of γ-ray astronomy at very high energies (VHE:> 100 GeV) with ground-based imaging atmospheric Cherenkov telescopes is described, the H.E.S.S. array in Namibia serving as example.
Extragalactic sources of high-energy cosmic gamma-rays, like blazars and quasars, are usually highly variable and the temporal characteristics of their light curves are key to the understanding of
