NGC 7184 is a barred spiral galaxy 114 million light years from Earth.

Ringed Galaxy NGC 7020 thumbnail
31-Aug-2018
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
13-Jun-2018
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.

Spiral Galaxy NGC2835 thumbnail

NGC2835 is a small, faint spiral galaxy in the Hydra constellation. This is a test shot through a newly acquired GSO RC8 carbon fibre astrograph.

Faint Spiral Galaxy IC5332 thumbnail
27-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.

Spiral Galaxy Caldwell 101 thumbnail
11-Jul-2016
Caldwell 101 is a spiral galaxy about 31 million light-years away, tilted towards our line of sight. It is thought to be one of the most Milky Way-like spiral galaxies in our immediate vicinity. It also has at least one distorted companion galaxy similar to the Magellanic Clouds.

Galaxies NGC5101 and NGC5078 thumbnail
31-May-2016
This two panel mosaic shows the large galaxies NGC5101 (left) and NGC5078 (right), approximately 89 and 94 million light years distant. Galaxy IC879 is interacting with NGC5078, while galaxy IC4222 is shown in the bottom right corner. Numerous other small galaxies appear throughout the background

Asteroid 2001 TM120 Passing NGC 5078 thumbnail
19-Apr-2016
While looking through the data captured of NGC 5078, I discovered a very dim object slowly moving through the field of view. I have identified the object as main belt asteroid 2001 TM120, magnitude 15.5.

Southern Pinwheel Galaxy M83 thumbnail
11-Apr-2016
The Southern Pinwheel Galaxy is a barred spiral galaxy approximately 15 million light-years away. It is one of the closest and brightest barred spiral galaxies in the sky.

Animation of Sombrero Processing Steps thumbnail
10-Apr-2016
When it's cloudy I will go back to an image and animate the steps I took so I can watch it from start to finished. Presented in this animation are the main processing steps in sequence from my image of the Sombrero Galaxy.

Colliding Antennae Galaxies thumbnail
06-Apr-2016
The Antennae Galaxies, also known as NGC 4038/NGC 4039, are a pair of interacting galaxies ~45 million light years away. They are currently going through a starburst phase, in which the collision of clouds of gas and dust, with entangled magnetic fields, causes rapid star formation.
