The GREAT Carina nebula (middle), with LMC galaxy near the tree makes a very quintessential Southern Hemi view. Pictured from Lighthouse Rd, Byron Bay - conveniently closed at night so I can't get run over while taking a shot like this.

The huge Rosette Nebula (NGC2237) has so many different parts it's divided into at least 5 distinct NGC objects. I often find myself drawn to this inner section (NGC 2238) which is a sinewed knotting of dark nebulae dust scattered about the inside near the open cluster of new stars. Some people can see a panther (or jaguar logo) jumping towards the cluster. I really like the tiny black spots of dust which are Bok globules - the progenitors of new stars - often binary doubles or multiple star systems. You can also see many of these dark globules have resolvable tails pointing away from the hot star cluster as the solar winds push through them meaning these exotic objects are "Cometry Globules" - neat!

I am no longer an amateur astronomer apparently. I’m a “professional” astronomer… lol. Thanks @CosmicRami for being my peer and @ProfAstroSarah for your teaching and MC’ing my graduation ceremony and after grad espresso martinis 😆 🍸 ...

Not much going on at the Byron Bay Observatory right now. Here’s a quick test of a new 400mm canon lens and HDR composite of last night’s moon. I hope everyone with Covid is ok! #byronbay #canon6dmarkii #astrophotography ...

Merry Christmas from the original disco dong, the Byron Bay Lighthouse! Canon 6D Mk II / 26mm / 15s / f3.5 / ISO 1600mm + LASER 🔦 (Also thx for the new canon lens @louisebeaumontphotography 🤣) #astrophotography #canonaustralia #byronbay #shitfluencer #merrychristmas ...

Comet Leonard from 1 hour ago. Much brighter in the last 48 hours! Still not a great target unless you have a long lens or telescope but super cool! 30 x 4s / f5.6 / 105mm / ISO 3200 Canon 6D Mk II untracked from backyard (Byron Bay, Australia). ☄️ #astrophotography #canonaustralia #byronbay #cometleonard ...

Well she ain’t much but I caught a glimpse in my camera of Comet Leonard in the dying light as it sunk over the western sunset. 40 x 2” f5.6 ISO 6400 105mm / Canon 6D Mk II - Taken from St Helena lookout, Byron Bay. 🙂 #astrophotography #canonaustralia #byronbay #cometleonard #comet ...

Lunar Eclipse from the easternmost point of Australia just over 1 hour ago. Little hint of the Pleiades. Wasn't sure if it would be visible at all as it rose after sunset, so this is nice 🙂 🇦🇺 (Canon 6D MkII 105mm 2s/F6.3/ISO1600) #astrophotography #canonaustralia #eclipse #byronbay ...

Went camping with my boys and my dog so couldn't go far from the tent, but here is a quick poke at the Southern Celestial Pole from Wollumbin (Mt Warning) NSW. 42 x 30s / F4 / ISO 800 / 16mm Canon 6D Mk II #astrophotography #canonaustralia #mtwarning #woolumbin ...

Last night had decent conditions for planetary, allowing me to resolve inner details within Jupiter's Great Red Spot, all it's minor storms in the belts and the newer outbreak (white) moving away to the left of the GRS.
