Gabriela Mistral Nebula thumbnail
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).

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.

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

Gum 15 / RCW 32 Hydrogen Emission Nebula thumbnail
Gum 15 is a cloud of hydrogen gas 3,000 light-years from Earth. It is shaped by aggressive winds flowing from the stars within and around it.

NGC 3199 thumbnail
NGC 3199 is a hydrogen emission nebula, about 12,000 light-years away. The nebula is about 75 light-years across with a Wolf-Rayet star generating an intense stellar wind in the center of its ring.
