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.

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.

Bubble Galaxy NGC 3521 thumbnail
27-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 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.

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.

Centaurus A thumbnail
12-May-2017
Centaurus A is a peculiar galaxy discovered in 1826 by Scottish astronomer James Dunlop in Parramatta, Australia. It is ~10-16 million light years away and its lenticular with dust lanes hybrid appearance is the result of a merge of two galaxies.

Omega Centauri thumbnail
19-Apr-2017
Omega Centauri (NGC 5139) is the largest globular cluster in the Milky Way at a diameter of roughly 150 light-years. It is estimated to contain approximately 10 million stars.

NGC 2736 - The Pencil Nebula thumbnail
02-Feb-2017
NGC 2736, known as the Pencil Nebula is a part of the supernova remnants from the Vela pulsar, 815 light years away.

On the Shoreline of the Lagoon thumbnail
09-Aug-2016
Next to the Lagoon Nebula, there lies the often overlooked collection of absorption, reflection and emission nebulae: NGC 6559, IC 1274, IC 1275, IC 4684, IC 4685, Barnard 303, LDN 227, LDN 213, and planetary nebula PN M 1-41.

Trifid Nebula in HaLRGB thumbnail
03-Aug-2016
Almost everyone has a go at imaging the Trifid nebula, which is composed of 3 different type of nebulae; emission, reflection, and absorption. When I noticed some faint red glow in the background, I decided to try integrating some long hydrogen emission line frames to see if I could get any structure out of it. I'm quite happy with the resulting background structures!
