Northern Lights over Vesturhorn Mountain, Iceland

I captured this shot of the northern lights over Vesturhorn Mountain while in Iceland recently. In the foreground, you can see many small black sand dunes with grass on the top. It's a very surreal place.

The Antennae - A collision of galactic proportions
NGC4038 and NGC4039
This is an LRGB composition, with 16.5 hours of data collected through a 12.5" telescope, from a suburban Canberra (Australia) backyard, March 2015.
Faint structures are clearly visible showing the merger of the two central cores. This is a good example of some serious star-burst activity occurring :-)

MW Core near Sagitarius

This is a full frame 55mm stacked tight shot of the Milky Way near the constellation Sagittarius. The core is apparent and "below left" of the core you can make out the very bright region associated with the Lagoon Nebula (M8).
