"Orion Nights" by Will Vrbasso.My annual imaging of the Great Orion Nebula (M42), and the Running Man Nebula. A favourite and popular target, I just like to take photos of it to gauge my progress every year - sort of a "yard stick".
"The Flower of the Deep" by Will Vrbasso.Easy to photograph, but difficult to master, the great southern deep sky nebula of Carina. Being a very bright nebula, it is relatively straight forward to find and image - but all those pesky stars get in the way - millions of them.
"The Pale Moon" by Will Vrbasso. This humble shot is a multiple-exposure image of the moon showing the dim earth-glow on the dark side with the illuminated side of the moon at roughly 15%, taken from my backyard in Perth, Western Australia.
"The Ghost of Rigel" by Will Vrbasso.This image shot with a standard Canon EOS6D is of the faint reflection nebula IC 2118 (also known as the Witch Head Nebula, if one looks at this image rotated clockwise a bit). It haunts the nearby bright star Rigel, a supergiant star forming part of the Orion constellation.
"Magellan's Pet Tarantula" by Will Vrbasso.An HDR image of a portion of the Large Magellanic Clouds, a satellite galaxy of our Milkyway, shot through my telescope last weekend. The big cyan nebula slightly to the right of center is the Tarantula nebula.
"The Great Carina Nebula - Xmas Edition" by Will Vrbasso.A widefield image of the mighty Carina Nebula and home to the massive Eta Carinae star system. Four times larger and brighter than even the Orion Nebula, surely this is the jewel in the southern hemisphere.
"The Horsehead Nebula - Ledge Point Edition" by Will Vrbasso. My second attempt at the famous Horsehead Nebula (and other miscellaneous astro objects :). Taken near Ledge Point, Western Australia. This shot was with an unmodified stock Canon EOS6D DSLR in the warm southern hemisphere nights
"The Fornax Galaxy Cluster" by Will Vrbasso. My humble attempt at imaging the fantastic Fornax Galaxy Cluster with my stock DSLR. Count the galaxies (most of them are round blobs, but the spiral at the bottom left is the pretty obvious galaxy IC1365).
