NGC 3521 is a flocculent spiral galaxy located 26 million light-years away from Earth

Spiral Galaxy NGC 5068 thumbnail
24-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.

Red Spider Nebula thumbnail

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
22-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.

Reflection Nebula NGC 2626 thumbnail
18-Jun-2020
NGC 2626 is a seldom photographed, spectacular reflection nebula in a sea of hydrogen emission clouds.

Starburst Galaxy NGC 1808 thumbnail
05-Jun-2020
NGC 1808 has an unusual, warped shape. Most spiral galaxies are flat disks, but this one has curls of dust and gas at its outer spiral arms.

Sculptor Galaxy thumbnail
24-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.

Tidal Shells of NGC 474 thumbnail
08-Nov-2019
Perhaps too tough of a target for light polluted skies, elliptical galaxy NGC 474 still managed to show some tidal tails / shells from interacting with the nearby spiral galaxy NGC 470.

The Butterfly Cluster thumbnail
07-Jul-2019
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.

Sombrero Galaxy thumbnail
26-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.

Witch Head Nebula thumbnail
11-Apr-2019
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
13-Feb-2019
The Skull & Crossbones Nebula is an active star-forming region approximately 20,000 light years away.

Spiral Galaxy NGC289 thumbnail
17-Nov-2018
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.

Spiral Galaxy NGC7184 thumbnail
