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

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.

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.

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 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

Asteroid 2015 TG237 Passing by Barred Spiral Galaxy NGC 1365 thumbnail
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
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.

Galactic Trio Arp 286 thumbnail
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
IC4351 is an obscure spiral galaxy 123 million light years from Earth.

Sombrero Galaxy thumbnail
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
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
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.

Grand Spiral Galaxy NGC7424 thumbnail
NGC7424 is a large barred spiral galaxy with well defined arms, similar to the Milky Way. It is around 38 million light years away.

Arp 93 Colliding Galaxies NGC7284 and NGC7285 thumbnail
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
NGC 7184 is a barred spiral galaxy 114 million light years from Earth.
