A deep Triangulum galaxy

A deep Triangulum galaxy

This fall I captured several tens of hours of images on the Triangulum galaxy, Messier 33. I used the popular broadband approach (LRGB), but also gathered more than 100 hours in narrow band filters in order to see the star forming regions and rich nebulae in this...

Comet 2022 E3 across a galaxy field

The comet C/2022 E3 (ZTF) crossed an interesting field of galaxies the night of the 23rd of January 2023, including NGC5907, also known as the Splinter galaxy, and Messier 102. This telescopic image of the Comet 2022 E3 (ZTF) was captured on the early morning of the...
Small Magellanic Cloud

Small Magellanic Cloud

Located in the southern constellation of Tucan we find one of our satellite galaxies, the Small Magellanic Cloud (SMC). This dwarf galaxy was supposed to be a nebula when it was observed by Ferdinand Magellan and his crew while doing the first circumnavigation of...
M101 deep field, 100 hours with a small telescope

M101 deep field, 100 hours with a small telescope

The M101 galaxy, also known as the Pinwheel galaxy, is a face-on spiral galaxy located in the constellation of Ursa Major, some 21 million light-years away from Earth. This image is the result of a 2 year scientific project between professional and amateur astronomers...
Nebulae in the Spiral Arms of the Triangulum galaxy

Nebulae in the Spiral Arms of the Triangulum galaxy

Can we spot nebulae in another galaxy? Yes, with the use of Ha filters we can detect those star forming regions in our neighbour galaxies. The Triangulum galaxy, M33, is located in the northern constellation Triangulum. As seen from Earth it has a really wide angular...
