Bubble Galaxy NGC 3521 thumbnail
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.

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.

NGC 300 thumbnail
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.

Faint Spiral Galaxy IC5332 thumbnail
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.

Grus Quartet thumbnail
The Grus-Quartet consists of four large spiral galaxies, between 63 and 99 million light years away, which are so close to each other that they are interacting.

Centaurus A thumbnail
Centaurus A is a peculiar galaxy discovered in 1826 by Scottish astronomer James Dunlop in Parramatta, Australia. It is ~10-16 million light years away and its lenticular with dust lanes hybrid appearance is the result of a merge of two galaxies.

NGC 2835 Spiral Galaxy thumbnail
NGC2835 is a small, faint spiral galaxy in the Hydra constellation. It was probably too small and faint to attempt from the suburbs of Brisbane, but I persisted through the very few clear nights I could get over the last 6 weeks.

Spiral Galaxy Caldwell 101 thumbnail
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.

Galaxies NGC5101 and NGC5078 thumbnail
This two panel mosaic shows the large galaxies NGC5101 (left) and NGC5078 (right), approximately 89 and 94 million light years distant. Galaxy IC879 is interacting with NGC5078, while galaxy IC4222 is shown in the bottom right corner. Numerous other small galaxies appear throughout the background

Asteroid 2001 TM120 Passing NGC 5078 thumbnail
While looking through the data captured of NGC 5078, I discovered a very dim object slowly moving through the field of view. I have identified the object as main belt asteroid 2001 TM120, magnitude 15.5.

Southern Pinwheel Galaxy M83 thumbnail
The Southern Pinwheel Galaxy is a barred spiral galaxy approximately 15 million light-years away. It is one of the closest and brightest barred spiral galaxies in the sky.

Animation of Sombrero Processing Steps thumbnail
When it's cloudy I will go back to an image and animate the steps I took so I can watch it from start to finished. Presented in this animation are the main processing steps in sequence from my image of the Sombrero Galaxy.

Colliding Antennae Galaxies thumbnail
The Antennae Galaxies, also known as NGC 4038/NGC 4039, are a pair of interacting galaxies ~45 million light years away. They are currently going through a starburst phase, in which the collision of clouds of gas and dust, with entangled magnetic fields, causes rapid star formation.

Asteroid 2000 JU23 Passing the Antennae Galaxies NGC 4038 / NGC 4039 thumbnail
While looking through the data captured of the Antennae galaxies, I discovered a very dim object slowly moving through the field of view. I have identified the object as main belt asteroid 2000 JU23, magnitude 18.8

Sombrero Galaxy: A comparison between my first ever astronomical photo 10 months ago and now thumbnail
The Sombrero Galaxy is an unbarred spiral galaxy 28 million light-years from Earth. The galaxy has a diameter of approximately 50,000 light-years, 30% the size of the Milky Way.
