Grand Spiral Galaxy NGC7424 thumbnail
03-Nov-2018
NGC7424 is a large barred spiral galaxy with well defined arms, similar to the Milky Way. It is around 38 million light years away.

210 million light years away, a barred spiral galaxy NGC 7284 is colliding with a lenticular galaxy NGC 7285, throwing off massive tidal tails.

Rarely photographed, the barred spiral galaxy IC5092 lies 150 million light years away in the southern sky. Its outer arms seem to form a ring around the inner barred structure.

Ringed Galaxy NGC 7020 thumbnail

The southern galaxy NGC 7020 presents an unusual morphology: it includes a very regular outer ring which is completely detached and which envelops an inner ring/lens zone with a hexagon surrounding an X shape.

A galactic merger is happening 165 million light years away between the spiral galaxies NGC 6769, 6770, 6771.

Barred Spiral Galaxy NGC5921 thumbnail

The barred grand spiral galaxy NGC 5921 lies 65 million light years away. It was discovered by William Herschel on 1 May 1786. There are several background galaxies present in the image.

Asteroid 2000 AJ129 Passing NGC5921 thumbnail
08-Jun-2018
While looking through the data captured of NGC 5921, I discovered a very dim object slowly moving through the field of view. The object has been identified as main belt asteroid 2000 AJ129, magnitude 15.

Bubble Galaxy NGC 3521 thumbnail
28-Mar-2018
The large and bright Bubble Galaxy, or NGC 3521, is located in the Leo constellation, which is quite north in the sky for my location. Upon seeing a fantastic test exposure, I could not leave this galaxy alone.

NGC 1532 Tidal Tails thumbnail
25-Dec-2017
50 million light years away, NGC 1532 is slowly devouring one of its companion dwarf galaxies, NGC 1531. Large tidal tails from NGC 1532 are thrown outwards as the two galaxies interact. A number of other dwarf companion galaxies are also visible in the frame.

NGC 300 thumbnail
08-Nov-2017
NGC 300 is a spiral galaxy in the constellation Sculptor. It is one of the closest galaxies to the Local Group at 6 million light years distance.

Faint Spiral Galaxy IC5332 thumbnail
28-Sep-2017
IC 5332 is a very faint spiral galaxy 39 million light years away. It is a challenging target in light polluted skies. While processing the image I noticed several small galaxies around and in the background of its spiral arms. I'm interested in revisiting this target again with a longer focal length to see what detail I can tease from these.

Grus Quartet thumbnail
20-Aug-2017
The Grus-Quartet consists of four large spiral galaxies, between 63 and 99 million light years away, which are so close to each other that they are interacting.

NGC 2835 Spiral Galaxy thumbnail
22-Apr-2017
NGC2835 is a small, faint spiral galaxy in the Hydra constellation. It was probably too small and faint to attempt from the suburbs of Brisbane, but I persisted through the very few clear nights I could get over the last 6 weeks.
