New Images



My most recent images taken at the 2006 Texas Star Party at Ft. Davis Texas.



M1 - Crab Nebula.  Shot this one close to the western horizon and it still came out OK.





M13 - Hercules Globular Cluster.  One of my favorite star clusters.





M17 - Swan Nebula.  Taken on a very windy night so not many good images. 





M40 - Double star in Ursa Major, the Big Dipper. 





M51 - Whirlpool galaxy. 





M81 - not many good images since it was very windy.





M82 - interesting galaxy.





M92 - Nice globular cluster found near M13.





M97 - Owl nebula.  Kinda looks like an owl.





M101 - tough to image due to wind and not very bright object.





M104 - Sombrero galaxy.





Ghost of Jupiter - a cool blue nebula. 






Comet 73P/Schwassmann-Wachmann 3 - this is the brightest of the many fragment. 





Antaries - nice bright red star in Scorpius.





Stargate -





Jupiter - looks OK but think I can get a better shot next time.





Pluto - never could find this guy so will try again.  Lots of stars.......
