Spiral Galaxy NGC 5068 thumbnail
23-Jul-2021
NGC 5068 is a seldom photographed face-on galaxy sporting a bright central bar with diffuse spiral arms containing areas of pink hydrogen nebulosity and star-forming regions.

Spiral Galaxy NGC 5084 thumbnail
12-Jun-2021
Categorised as a supermassive disk galaxy, at a distance of 80 million light years and 200,000 light years across, NGC 5084 is one of the largest galaxies in the Virgo Supercluster. Seen edge on, the warped disk is a result of stealing material from nearby satellite galaxies.

Stars such as our Sun do not contain enough mass to finish their lives in the glorious explosions known as supernovae. However, they are still able to salute their imminent demise into dense, Earth-sized embers called white dwarfs by first expelling colourful shells of gas known as planetary nebulae.

The Red Spider Nebula (also catalogued as NGC 6537) is a planetary nebula located near the heart of the Milky Way.

Spiral Galaxy NGC 6744 thumbnail
21-Nov-2020
NGC 6744 (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.

Saturn Nebula thumbnail

The Saturn Nebula is a tiny but complex planetary nebula, ~4000 light years away in Aquarius. The Saturn Nebula gets its name from its resemblance to the planet Saturn to the observer.

Sculptor Galaxy thumbnail
23-Nov-2019
The Sculptor Galaxy, also known as the Silver Coin or Silver Dollar Galaxy, NGC 253, is an intermediate spiral galaxy in the constellation Sculptor. The Sculptor Galaxy is a starburst galaxy, which means that it is currently undergoing a period of intense star formation.

10600 light years away, Messier 22 is one of the closest and brightest globular clusters visible from Earth.

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.

Sombrero Galaxy thumbnail
25-Apr-2019
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.

Messier 2 Globula Cluster thumbnail

55,000 light years away, Messier 2 (M2) is one of the largest known globular clusters.

Spiral Galaxies NGC6935 and NGC6937 thumbnail
17-Aug-2018
NGC6935 and NGC6937 are two differing spiral galaxies that appear close to each other, though they are not gravitationally bound

Spiral Galaxy NGC6902 and Friends thumbnail
30-Jul-2018
NGC 6902 is a spiral galaxy 33 million light years away in the Sagittarius constellation. It has a very bright center, with grand spiral arms extending out much further than the local light pollution allowed me to see.

Asteroid 2000 AJ129 Passing NGC5921 thumbnail
07-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.
