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

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.

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.

NGC 300 thumbnail
08-Nov-2017
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.

Centaurus A thumbnail
12-May-2017
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.

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

Asteroid 2000 JU23 Passing the Antennae Galaxies NGC 4038 / NGC 4039 thumbnail
05-Apr-2016
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

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.

Asteroid 2002 UY1 Passing by NGC 1055 thumbnail
14-Nov-2015
While looking through the data captured last night of NGC 1055, I discovered an object slowly moving through the field of view. It seems to be moving much more slowly than a satellite, so I can only conclude it must be an asteroid. Thanks to Le_Baron on Reddit, the asteroid was identified as 2002 UY1.

Peculiar Galaxy NGC 5713 thumbnail
27-Jun-2019
NGC 5713 (right) is a peculiar, asymmetric galaxy, interacting with NGC 5719 (left) in the constellation Virgo.

Galactic Trio Arp 286 thumbnail
27-May-2019
A trio of interacting galaxies. NGC 5560, which is stretched out from interacting with the large galaxy NGC 5566 (yellow). NGC 5569 is the small, blue galaxy below NGC 5566.

Spiral Galaxy IC4351 thumbnail
14-May-2019
IC4351 is an obscure spiral galaxy 123 million light years from Earth.

Sombrero Galaxy thumbnail
25-Apr-2019
The Sombrero Galaxy (also known as Messier Object 104, M104 or NGC 4594) is a lenticular galaxy in the constellation Virgo found 31 million light-years from Earth.

Spiral Galaxy NGC289 thumbnail
16-Nov-2018
Seen face-on, this large spiral galaxy is 70 million light years away, with a bright core and very faint blue arms. A companion elliptical galaxy seems to be interacting with a spiral arm.

Cartwheel Galaxy thumbnail
08-Nov-2018
Lying about 500 million light-years away in the constellation of Sculptor, the cartwheel shape of this galaxy is the result of a violent galactic collision.
