Narrowband Lagoon Nebula thumbnail
The Lagoon Nebula is an active stellar nursery spanning 60 light years across. This false color photograph shows the interplay of three gasses: hydrogen-alpha in green, sulfur-II in red, and oxygen-III in blue.

Messier 55 Globular Cluster thumbnail
One of the few Messier objects difficult to observe in the northern hemisphere, M55 is a globular cluster 17,600 light years away, comprising of around 100,000 very old stars.

The Butterfly Cluster thumbnail
The Butterfly Cluster, Messier 6, is an open cluster of hot blue stars with the brightest member being an orange giant star. Behind the cluster is the orange light of the Milky Way, and a beautiful cloud of excited Hydrogen alpha gas.

Bipolar Nebula NGC 6164 thumbnail
4200 light years distant, NGC 6164 is a bipolar emission nebula was created by a massive O-type star, 40 times as larger than the Sun.

Peculiar Galaxy NGC 5713 thumbnail
NGC 5713 (right) is a peculiar, asymmetric galaxy, interacting with NGC 5719 (left) in the constellation Virgo.

Ceres passing by the Blue Horsehead Nebula thumbnail
Shown in this animation is the movement of Ceres over 8 hours, on the night of 4th June 2019, as it passed by the outer edge of IC4592, the Blue Horsehead Nebula.

Galactic Trio Arp 286 thumbnail
A trio of interacting galaxies. NGC 5560, which is stretched out from interacting with the large galaxy NGC 5566 (yellow). NGC 5569 is the small, blue galaxy below NGC 5566.

Spiral Galaxy IC4351 thumbnail
IC4351 is an obscure spiral galaxy 123 million light years from Earth.

Sombrero Galaxy thumbnail
The Sombrero Galaxy (also known as Messier Object 104, M104 or NGC 4594) is a lenticular galaxy in the constellation Virgo found 31 million light-years from Earth.

Carina Nebula Up Close thumbnail
One of the largest nebulae in the sky, the Carina Nebula is visible to the naked eye in the southern sky.

Witch Head Nebula thumbnail
IC 2118 (also known as Witch Head Nebula due to its shape) is an extremely faint reflection nebula believed to be an ancient supernova remnant or gas cloud illuminated by nearby supergiant star Rigel in the constellation of Orion.

Skull and Crossbones Nebula thumbnail
The Skull & Crossbones Nebula is an active star-forming region approximately 20,000 light years away.

Spiral Galaxy NGC289 thumbnail
Seen face-on, this large spiral galaxy is 70 million light years away, with a bright core and very faint blue arms. A companion elliptical galaxy seems to be interacting with a spiral arm.

Cartwheel Galaxy thumbnail
Lying about 500 million light-years away in the constellation of Sculptor, the cartwheel shape of this galaxy is the result of a violent galactic collision.

Grand Spiral Galaxy NGC7424 thumbnail
NGC7424 is a large barred spiral galaxy with well defined arms, similar to the Milky Way. It is around 38 million light years away.
