Hispania Passing NGC 5101. The Brightest Asteroid I've Ever Seen thumbnail
20-May-2016
Hispania (1915 WT) is the brightest asteroid I've ever seen. It's so bright, I had to remove it from each frame for plate solving to work. Also moving through the frame is another named asteroid: Geowilliams (1984 UL2)

Asteroid 2001 TM120 Passing NGC 5078 thumbnail
20-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.

Colliding Antennae Galaxies thumbnail

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.

While looking through the data captured of the Antennae galaxies, I discovered a very dim object slowly moving through the field of view. I have identified the object as main belt asteroid 2000 JU23, magnitude 18.8

Asteroid 1999 CK46 Passing the Sombrero Galaxy thumbnail
31-Mar-2016
While looking through the data captured of the Sombrero Galaxy, I discovered an object slowly moving through the field of view. I have identified the object as main belt asteroid 1999 CK46, magnitude 17.4.

NGC 1365 is a barred spiral galaxy 56 million light years away. Presented here is a hydrogen alpha enhanced color photograph.

Animation of NGC 1055 Processing Stages thumbnail
25-Nov-2015
Often I like to see how an image is processed from start to finished. Presented in this animation are the main processing steps in sequence from my image of NGC 1055

Asteroid 2015 TG237 Passing by Barred Spiral Galaxy NGC 1365 thumbnail
23-Nov-2015
While looking through the data captured of NGC 1365, I discovered an object slowly moving through the field of view. I have identified the object as asteroid 2015 TG237, discovered just last month.

NGC 1055 is an edge-on spiral galaxy located 52 million light-years away.

Asteroid 2002 UY1 Passing by NGC 1055 thumbnail
15-Nov-2015
While looking through the data captured last night of NGC 1055, I discovered an object slowly moving through the field of view. It seems to be moving much more slowly than a satellite, so I can only conclude it must be an asteroid. Thanks to Le_Baron on Reddit, the asteroid was identified as 2002 UY1.

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.

Animation of Sombrero Processing Steps thumbnail

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.
