These two irregular galaxies are among the closest to our own Milky Way.
- H and Chi Persei
H and Chi, in Perseus, are a very bright pair of young star clusters.
Jupiter, the largest planet in the Solar System, is seen as a bright dot in this wide field image.
- NGC 7000 and M39
NGC 7000, an hydrogen-rich nebula in the Swan constellation, next to a small open cluster.
Messier 42 is the most impressive nebula, visible with the unaided eye and spectacular with even a small telescope.
- Southern Cross
A nice constellation in the Southern Hemisphere, featured in the logo of our organisation. Next to it is the Coalsack, a famous dark nebula.

- The Pleiades
Messier 45, the most spectacular open cluster.
- The Rosette Nebula
The young stars of cluster NGC 2244 are surrounded by a spectacular rose-shaped nebula.
- Messier 33
Messier M33, next-door neighbour to the Milky Way galaxy.
- Clusters NGC 6193 and NGC 6231
A cluster embedded in dense gas clouds, and a very young cluster.
- Messier 16 and Messier M17
The Messier M16 and Messier M17 nebulae, two of the best known celestial objects, faintly appear in this "unaided eye" image.
