Sharpless 63 thumbnail
Although categorised as a hydrogen emission nebula, Sh2-63 lacks the bright red colouring typical of similar objects.

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.

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

The Butterfly Cluster thumbnail
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.

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

Planetary Nebula IC5148 thumbnail
A glowing shell of ionized gas ejected from a dying star, IC5148 is at the end of its life, shedding its outer layers and contracting from a red giant to a white dwarf.

Prawn Nebula in Emission Line Color thumbnail
IC 4628, sometimes known as The Prawn Nebula, is an emission nebula located around 6000 light-years away in the constellation Scorpius

Prawn Nebula in Natural Color thumbnail
IC 4628, sometimes known as The Prawn Nebula, is an emission nebula located around 6000 light-years away in the constellation Scorpius

Shapley 1 Planetary Nebula thumbnail
Shapley 1 is a planetary nebula in the southern sky with a magnitude 14 white dwarf at it's center. It is approximately 4900 light years away, and one third of a light year across.

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.

Waves of Vela thumbnail
The Vela Supernova Remnant is an expanding bubble of ionized gas 800 light years away, caused by a supernova explosion 12000 years ago. This image is a small section of the bubble, presented as a narrowband combination of light emitted by Hydrogen alpha, Sulfur II and Oxygen III.

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.

Symbiotic Star System R Aquarii thumbnail
R Aquarii is a symbiotic star system where a white dwarf is drawing material from its binary red giant companion. The extra material is then ejected into space in loops and jets.
