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

Spiral Galaxy NGC 5068 thumbnail

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.

Spiral Galaxy NGC 6744 thumbnail
21-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.

Starburst Galaxy NGC 1808 thumbnail

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.

Spiral Galaxy IC5325 thumbnail

IC 5325 is a rarely photographed spiral galaxy in the Phoenix constellation

Tidal Shells of NGC 474 thumbnail
07-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.

IC 5267 (left) is a spiral galaxy 79 million light years away.

Spiral Galaxy IC4351 thumbnail

IC4351 is an obscure spiral galaxy 123 million light years from Earth.

Spiral Galaxy NGC289 thumbnail
16-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

NGC 7184 is a barred spiral galaxy 114 million light years from Earth.

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.

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.
