Planetary Nebula IC5148 thumbnail
23-Sep-2018
A glowing shell of ionized gas ejected from a dying star, IC5148 is at the end of its life, shedding its outer layers and contracting from a red giant to a white dwarf.

Arp 93 Colliding Galaxies NGC7284 and NGC7285 thumbnail
16-Sep-2018
210 million light years away, a barred spiral galaxy NGC 7284 is colliding with a lenticular galaxy NGC 7285, throwing off massive tidal tails.

Spiral Galaxy NGC7184 thumbnail
11-Sep-2018
NGC 7184 is a barred spiral galaxy 114 million light years from Earth.

Barred Spiral Galaxy IC5092 thumbnail
06-Sep-2018
Rarely photographed, the barred spiral galaxy IC5092 lies 150 million light years away in the southern sky. Its outer arms seem to form a ring around the inner barred structure.

Ringed Galaxy NGC 7020 thumbnail
31-Aug-2018
The southern galaxy NGC 7020 presents an unusual morphology: it includes a very regular outer ring which is completely detached and which envelops an inner ring/lens zone with a hexagon surrounding an X shape.

Animation of Processing Data for NGC6935 and NGC6937 thumbnail
21-Aug-2018
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 spiral galaxies NGC6935 and NGC6937

Spiral Galaxies NGC6935 and NGC6937 thumbnail
17-Aug-2018
NGC6935 and NGC6937 are two differing spiral galaxies that appear close to each other, though they are not gravitationally bound

Mars is Still Hazy thumbnail
14-Aug-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 global dust storm, slowly abating.

Prawn Nebula in Emission Line Color thumbnail
10-Aug-2018
IC 4628, sometimes known as The Prawn Nebula, is an emission nebula located around 6000 light-years away in the constellation Scorpius

Prawn Nebula in Natural Color thumbnail

IC 4628, sometimes known as The Prawn Nebula, is an emission nebula located around 6000 light-years away in the constellation Scorpius

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.
