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

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

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.

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.

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.

Grand Spiral Galaxy NGC7424 thumbnail
02-Nov-2018
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
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.

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.
