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.

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.

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.

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.

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
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.

Grus Quartet thumbnail
20-Aug-2017
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.

NGC 2835 Spiral Galaxy thumbnail
21-Apr-2017
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
11-Jul-2016
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
31-May-2016
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

Southern Pinwheel Galaxy M83 thumbnail
11-Apr-2016
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.

Spanish Dancer Galaxy - NGC1566 thumbnail
08-Dec-2015
Shot over four consecutive nights, the Spanish Dancer is a spiral galaxy ~38 million light years distant in the southern sky.

Animation of Barred Spiral Galaxy NGC 1365 Processing Stages thumbnail
04-Dec-2015
Often I like to see how an image is processed from start to finished. Presented in this animation are the main processing steps in sequence from my image of NGC 1365

Asteroid 2015 TG237 Passing by Barred Spiral Galaxy NGC 1365 thumbnail
23-Nov-2015
While looking through the data captured of NGC 1365, I discovered an object slowly moving through the field of view. I have identified the object as asteroid 2015 TG237, discovered just last month.
