Astrophotography

In my spare time I take images of the moon, stars, galaxies and other night sky objects with my Celestron telescope and either a Nikon DSLR camera or a ZWO ASI astro camera. You can find more details and all my images here. Below is an overview of my best images as well as my latest image.

NGC 2264 - Cone Nebula and Christmas Tree Cluster

The cone nebula is an H-II region, that is a region of ionized hydrogen. It is visible as a dark cone in the right part of the image. The visible bright stars belong to the Christmas tree cluster. Fotographed with help from Anna Bickel.

IC 405 - Flaming Star Nebula

The flaming star nebula is a reflection and emission nebula. This means that it reflects the light of stars but also emits its own light. Fotographed with the help of Anna Bickel.

Random Mandelbrot Image of the Day

Each day, a little program I made renders a randomly chosen part of the mandelbrot fractal and uploads the image here. See here for past images and more information.
