Mars is Still Hazy thumbnail

Mars is currently at it's closest to Earth since 2003, and appears as a brilliant red star in the sky. Unfortunately it is also suffering from a global dust storm, slowly abating.

Colliding Galaxies NGC6769 NGC6770 NGC6771 thumbnail
03-Aug-2018
A galactic merger is happening 165 million light years away between the spiral galaxies NGC 6769, 6770, 6771.

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.

Cats Paw Nebula thumbnail
19-Jul-2018
Shaped like a cats paw, NGC 6334 is a stellar nursery and emission nebula 5,500 light years away in the constellation Scorpius. This image comprises of emission line data for Sulfur-II, Hydrogen-alpha and Oxygen-III, mapped to red, green, and blue respectively.

Hazy Mars at Opposition thumbnail
11-Jul-2018
Mars is currently at it's closest to Earth since 2003, and appears as a brilliant red star in the sky. Unfortunately it is also suffering from a severe global dust storm, showing no signs of abating. This means even the polar ice caps are hard to see, let alone any surface features.

Jupiter July 2018 thumbnail
08-Jul-2018
Jupiter is high in the skies just after dusk. I period of good seeing allowed me to capture more detail than I've managed before.

Ara Dragons NGC6188 thumbnail
04-Jul-2018
NGC 6188 is a large emission nebula of compressed molecular clouds 4,000 light years away in the constellation Ara. This image spans around 3 full moons and comprises of emission line data for Sulfur-II, Hydrogen-alpha and Oxygen-III, mapped to red, green, and blue respectively.

Barred Spiral Galaxy NGC5921 thumbnail
13-Jun-2018
The barred grand spiral galaxy NGC 5921 lies 65 million light years away. It was discovered by William Herschel on 1 May 1786. There are several background galaxies present in the image.

Asteroid 2000 AJ129 Passing NGC5921 thumbnail
07-Jun-2018
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.

Shapley 1 Planetary Nebula thumbnail
04-Jun-2018
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.

Snake Nebula thumbnail
24-May-2018
The Snake Nebula (also known as Barnard 72) is a small but S-shaped dust lane that snakes out in front of the Milky Way star clouds.

Mars and Pluto Conjunction thumbnail
02-May-2018
For a period of three mostly cloudy nights, the planet Mars and Pluto were within 1.5 degrees of each other.

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.
