10600 light years away, Messier 22 is one of the closest and brightest globular clusters visible from Earth.

Messier 2 Globula Cluster thumbnail

55,000 light years away, Messier 2 (M2) is one of the largest known globular clusters.

Narrowband Lagoon Nebula thumbnail
27-Aug-2019
The Lagoon Nebula is an active stellar nursery spanning 60 light years across. This false color photograph shows the interplay of three gasses: hydrogen-alpha in green, sulfur-II in red, and oxygen-III in blue.

Messier 55 Globular Cluster thumbnail
13-Aug-2019
One of the few Messier objects difficult to observe in the northern hemisphere, M55 is a globular cluster 17,600 light years away, comprising of around 100,000 very old stars.

The Butterfly Cluster thumbnail
07-Jul-2019
The Butterfly Cluster, Messier 6, is an open cluster of hot blue stars with the brightest member being an orange giant star. Behind the cluster is the orange light of the Milky Way, and a beautiful cloud of excited Hydrogen alpha gas.

Carina Nebula Up Close thumbnail
19-Apr-2019
One of the largest nebulae in the sky, the Carina Nebula is visible to the naked eye in the southern sky.

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.

Gabriela Mistral Nebula thumbnail
13-Mar-2018
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).

Rosette Nebula thumbnail
21-Jan-2018
The Rosette Nebula is an emission nebula 3000 light years away. The central area of the nebula contains an open cluster of hot, blue stars which have cleared much of the center of its gas.

Omega Centauri thumbnail
19-Apr-2017
Omega Centauri (NGC 5139) is the largest globular cluster in the Milky Way at a diameter of roughly 150 light-years. It is estimated to contain approximately 10 million stars.

Caldwell 68 and Globular Cluster NGC6723 thumbnail
26-Jun-2016
Less than 500 light-years away and blocking light from more distant, background stars in the Milky Way, the densest part of the dust cloud of Caldwell 68 is about 8 light-years long. At its tip is a group of reflection nebulae cataloged as NGC 6726, 6727, 6729, and IC 4812. A characteristic blue color is produced as light from hot stars is reflected by the cosmic dust.

Jewel Box Open Cluster NGC4755 thumbnail
29-Mar-2016
The Jewel Box, Kappa Crucis Cluster, NGC 4755, is an open cluster in the constellation Crux. This cluster is one of the youngest known, with an estimated age of 14 million years. It is located 6,440 light years from Earth, and contains around 100 stars.

Globular Cluster Caldwell 79 / NGC 3201 thumbnail
06-Mar-2016
It's been cloudy. Very cloudy. I managed to get a short imaging session, so I had to choose a bright target. The globular cluster Caldwell 79 was in the right place at the right time. It is located at a distance of 16,300 light years from the Sun and has an estimated 254,000 times the mass of the Sun. This cluster is about 10.24 billion years old.

Messier 75 Globular Cluster thumbnail
11-Sep-2017
Messier 75 is a dense globular cluster 65000 light years away. This test shot is the first published photo from my new 10" f/4 newtonian telescope, and it's been quite a journey to get a nice field corrected image from it. Now I wait for the new moon and a suitable target.
