Maine Skies Astronomy

Astro-Physics in ObservatoryThis website contains images of objects in the night sky that were taken from my back yard in Standish, Maine using a 6" Astro-Physics  telescope and a cooled SBIG CCD camera.   I have enjoyed the hobby of astronomy for several years now and have been learning to take images of very distant, tiny and faint objects.   The quality of my images continues to improve with experience, some of my favorite ones are the Triangalum Galaxy, Crescent Nebula  and Jupiter.   My newest images are the Rosette NebulaNGC891, M34, IC410IC405the Andromeda Galaxy , M74 and the Veil Nebula.   Click on an image below to see the full size version.
