Spiral Galaxy NGC7184 thumbnail
NGC 7184 is a barred spiral galaxy 114 million light years from Earth.

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.

Reflection Nebula NGC5367 thumbnail
NGC5367 is a reflection nebula 2000 light years in the Centaurus constellation. The bright blue stars illuminate the otherwise dark molecular cloud complex.

Planetary Nebula NGC4361 thumbnail
NGC4361 is a planetary nebula with spiral arms similar to a galaxy. The star at the center of the nebula is shedding its outer layers while contracting to form a white dwarf.

Spiral Galaxy NGC2835 thumbnail
NGC2835 is a small, faint spiral galaxy in the Hydra constellation. This is a test shot through a newly acquired GSO RC8 carbon fibre astrograph.

South of Orion - NGC1999 thumbnail
NGC 1999 is a dusty blue reflection nebula, embedded in the hydrogen dust cloud of Orion. This narrow band enhanced image shows the light blue NGC 1999 at the center, with the edge of M42 (the Orion Nebula) at the far right. Also shown in the image is the waterfall nebula, the magenta shock wave between NGC 1999 and M42.

Saturn Nebula 2017 thumbnail
After a brief hiatus from astronomy to build a new, larger observatory, I've chosen another difficult target that was surprisingly bright.

The Flame and Horsehead Nebulae thumbnail
Adjacent to the bright blue supergiant star Alnitak shines the ionised hydrogen of the Flame and Horsehead nebulae.

The Orion Nebula thumbnail
The Orion Nebula is one of the brightest nebulae in the sky, visible to the naked eye. It is seen as the fuzzy middle star in the sword of Orion. The nebula is 1344 light years away and is one of the closest star forming regions to Earth.

Trifid Nebula in HaLRGB thumbnail
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!

Spiral Galaxy Caldwell 101 thumbnail
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.

Southern Pinwheel Galaxy M83 thumbnail
The Southern Pinwheel Galaxy is a barred spiral galaxy approximately 15 million light-years away. It is one of the closest and brightest barred spiral galaxies in the sky.

Sombrero Galaxy: A comparison between my first ever astronomical photo 10 months ago and now thumbnail
The Sombrero Galaxy is an unbarred spiral galaxy 28 million light-years from Earth. The galaxy has a diameter of approximately 50,000 light-years, 30% the size of the Milky Way.

Spanish Dancer Galaxy - NGC1566 thumbnail
Shot over four consecutive nights, the Spanish Dancer is a spiral galaxy ~38 million light years distant in the southern sky.
