"Orion Nights" by Will Vrbasso.My annual imaging of the Great Orion Nebula (M42), and the Running Man Nebula. A favourite and popular target, I just like to take photos of it to gauge my progress every year - sort of a "yard stick".

"The Flower of the Deep" by Will Vrbasso.Easy to photograph, but difficult to master, the great southern deep sky nebula of Carina. Being a very bright nebula, it is relatively straight forward to find and image - but all those pesky stars get in the way - millions of them.

"The Pale Moon" by Will Vrbasso. This humble shot is a multiple-exposure image of the moon showing the dim earth-glow on the dark side with the illuminated side of the moon at roughly 15%, taken from my backyard in Perth, Western Australia.

"Magellan's Pet Tarantula" by Will Vrbasso.An HDR image of a portion of the Large Magellanic Clouds, a satellite galaxy of our Milkyway, shot through my telescope last weekend. The big cyan nebula slightly to the right of center is the Tarantula nebula.

I intend to end this year with some big sessions from the Australian outback in Kalgoorlie.

"The Great Carina Nebula - Xmas Edition" by Will Vrbasso.A widefield image of the mighty Carina Nebula and home to the massive Eta Carinae star system. Four times larger and brighter than even the Orion Nebula, surely this is the jewel in the southern hemisphere.

"The Horsehead Nebula - Ledge Point Edition" by Will Vrbasso. My second attempt at the famous Horsehead Nebula (and other miscellaneous astro objects :). Taken near Ledge Point, Western Australia.  This shot was with an unmodified stock Canon EOS6D DSLR in the warm southern hemisphere nights

"The Fornax Galaxy Cluster" by Will Vrbasso. My humble attempt at imaging the fantastic Fornax Galaxy Cluster with my stock DSLR. Count the galaxies (most of them are round blobs, but the spiral at the bottom left is the pretty obvious galaxy IC1365).

"Desert Fire" by Will Vrbasso. Getting close to the horizon, the galaxy takes on a reddish tinge (just like the sun at sunsets).

"Desert of Stars"  Near Cervantes, Western Australia, there are sweeping dunes that rise out of the bush - fantastic locations to explore and image.

"Forever Searching" by Will Vrbasso. Here I am, lost again in some forsaken place...:) Not really. On the shore of Lake Dumbleyung I pause by some dead trees on the shore line to take this dramatic panorama of the milkyway.

"Moonlight over Green Pools" by Will Vrbasso.  The bright moonlight (at 33%) dominates over the Green Pools at William's Bay, Denmark, Western Australia. With a bit of processing I managed to get some of the Milkyway visible, being downed out by the bright moon.

"Sculptor Galaxy, Alone in the Dark" by Will Vrbasso.  In this shot, the Sculptor Galaxy appears floating as if it is "lost" in the wide expanse of space.
