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
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
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.

NGC 7083 thumbnail
NGC 7083 is a spiral galaxy located about 134 million light-years away.

Messier 22 Globular Cluster thumbnail
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
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
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
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
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
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.

Robins Egg Nebula thumbnail
NGC 1360 is known as the Robin's Egg Nebula, primarily due to its blue hue from strong oxygen-III emissions. It is a diffuse planetary nebula 1794 light years away. Presented is a narrowband image with H-alpha emissions mapped to red, and OIII emissions mapped to both green and blue (HOO palette).

NGC 300 thumbnail
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.
