Space Images

One of my hobbies is astronomy and I have taken photos of objects in space using my telescope (a Celestron Astromaster 130EQ) with a NexImage5 camera. Here are some of the photos I’ve taken. I’ve reduced the quality of these images so the page loads a bit faster.

First of all, a couple of pictures of Jupiter (the easiest planet to find in my opinion).

A higher gain photo of Jupiter. You can make out its four largest moons (Io, Ganymede, Callisto and Europa) as the four bright dots around the planet (three above and one below).

The next coolest planet to look at is of course Saturn:

A nice picture of Saturn, you can clearly make out the rings.

This one shows how empty the space is around Saturn (I used a wider lens to get the shot).

Finally, we have the Moon:
