Thanks for stopping by! I maintain this web site as an archive of sorts, to help me remember what I've taken images of, and what I have yet to do. In the hope that others will enjoy these images I humbly offer them up for your viewing pleasure. Keeping in mind that it's more for personal use, you may find that it doesn't format properly in some browsers. Sorry if that's the case. Time constraints limit my opportunities to make it work on all browsers and screen sizes.

With the exception of the historical photographs on the 'Asteroid Discovery and Research' page, all of the images on this site were taken in my backyard in urban Carmel Indiana. Some things you'll see here were 20 feet away from the camera, and some were many millions of light years distant. Browse and enjoy!

NGC 891 is a type 'Sb' spiral galaxy, seen edge-on. The edge on appearance and prominent dust lane are remarkable. It's thought to be about 31 million light years distant.

Four five-minute clear filter images,combined with one each 5-minute image with red, green, and blue fliters.
