Recent Work:

Reflection Nebula NGC5367 thumbnail
25-Apr-2018
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
18-Apr-2018
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.

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.

Gabriela Mistral Nebula thumbnail
13-Mar-2018
The Gabriela Mistral Nebula lies close to the Carina Nebula ~7500 light years distant in the far-southern sky. This image is a narrowband representation showing glowing ionised gasses, Hydrogen-alpha (orange), Sulfur-II (red), and Oxygen-III (blue).

Spiral Galaxy NGC2835 thumbnail
16-Feb-2018
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.

Waves of Vela thumbnail
28-Jan-2018
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.

Rosette Nebula thumbnail
21-Jan-2018
The Rosette Nebula is an emission nebula 3000 light years away. The central area of the nebula contains an open cluster of hot, blue stars which have cleared much of the center of its gas.

South of Orion - NGC1999 thumbnail
08-Jan-2018
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.

NGC 1532 Tidal Tails thumbnail
25-Dec-2017
50 million light years away, NGC 1532 is slowly devouring one of its companion dwarf galaxies, NGC 1531. Large tidal tails from NGC 1532 are thrown outwards as the two galaxies interact. A number of other dwarf companion galaxies are also visible in the frame.

Robins Egg Nebula thumbnail
28-Nov-2017
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
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.

Uranus and Moons thumbnail
28-Oct-2017
Uranus and two of its very dim larger moons, Titania and Oberon.

Saturn and Moons thumbnail
25-Oct-2017
Saturn and some of its many moons in infrared, red, green, and blue filters, taken with a new ZWO ASI 290MM high speed planetary camera.

Faint Spiral Galaxy IC5332 thumbnail
27-Sep-2017
IC 5332 is a very faint spiral galaxy 39 million light years away. It is a challenging target in light polluted skies. While processing the image I noticed several small galaxies around and in the background of its spiral arms. I'm interested in revisiting this target again with a longer focal length to see what detail I can tease from these.

Symbiotic Star System R Aquarii thumbnail
21-Sep-2017
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.
