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.

NGC 2835 Spiral Galaxy thumbnail
21-Apr-2017
NGC2835 is a small, faint spiral galaxy in the Hydra constellation. It was probably too small and faint to attempt from the suburbs of Brisbane, but I persisted through the very few clear nights I could get over the last 6 weeks.

Spiral Galaxy Caldwell 101 thumbnail
11-Jul-2016
Caldwell 101 is a spiral galaxy about 31 million light-years away, tilted towards our line of sight. It is thought to be one of the most Milky Way-like spiral galaxies in our immediate vicinity. It also has at least one distorted companion galaxy similar to the Magellanic Clouds.

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 2001 TM120 Passing NGC 5078 thumbnail
19-Apr-2016
While looking through the data captured of NGC 5078, I discovered a very dim object slowly moving through the field of view. I have identified the object as main belt asteroid 2001 TM120, magnitude 15.5.

Southern Pinwheel Galaxy M83 thumbnail

The Southern Pinwheel Galaxy is a barred spiral galaxy approximately 15 million light-years away. It is one of the closest and brightest barred spiral galaxies in the sky.

Animation of Sombrero Processing Steps thumbnail

When it's cloudy I will go back to an image and animate the steps I took so I can watch it from start to finished. Presented in this animation are the main processing steps in sequence from my image of the Sombrero Galaxy.

Colliding Antennae Galaxies thumbnail
06-Apr-2016
The Antennae Galaxies, also known as NGC 4038/NGC 4039, are a pair of interacting galaxies ~45 million light years away. They are currently going through a starburst phase, in which the collision of clouds of gas and dust, with entangled magnetic fields, causes rapid star formation.

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

Sombrero Galaxy: A comparison between my first ever astronomical photo 10 months ago and now thumbnail
31-Mar-2016
The Sombrero Galaxy is an unbarred spiral galaxy 28 million light-years from Earth. The galaxy has a diameter of approximately 50,000 light-years, 30% the size of the Milky Way.

Asteroid 1999 CK46 Passing the Sombrero Galaxy thumbnail
31-Mar-2016
While looking through the data captured of the Sombrero Galaxy, I discovered an object slowly moving through the field of view. I have identified the object as main belt asteroid 1999 CK46, magnitude 17.4.

Spanish Dancer Galaxy - NGC1566 thumbnail
08-Dec-2015
Shot over four consecutive nights, the Spanish Dancer is a spiral galaxy ~38 million light years distant in the southern sky.

Animation of Barred Spiral Galaxy NGC 1365 Processing Stages thumbnail

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.
