Had to share these images which I’ve received from Martin Male this morning. All were taken from Romney last night, and all are stunning examples of deep sky imaging.

I particularly like the last one of the Hockey Stick galaxy. As Martin says, NGC 4565/4657’s odd hockey stick shape is thought to be as a result of gravitational interaction with “Whale” galaxy which you can see above and to the left.
Wonderful stuff. Well done Martin!
Fantastic. By a spooky coincidence I’ve had the phrase ‘globular cluster’ going through my head for the last few days. I must have sensed that Martin’s M13 pic was on the way…
I also love the NGC4565 which I believe is also known (appropriately) as the Needle Galaxy. Great stuff, Martin. You’re in the next video!

Indeed, a stunning image. The dust lane has been caught perfectly. Just as impressive is that Martin has picked up NGC4565a, which is a much fainter companion galaxy (about 30 times fainter than the “Needle”).
