All images were taken by me through various telescopes and camera lenses using photographic film. The negatives were digitized and processed in a computer using Adobe Photoshop software. All the images below were published in magazines and/or books except those labeled np.

This Photographic Gallery of Astronomical Objects is divided into seven sections (Solar System, Star Fields, Bright Nebulae, Dark Nebulae, Star Clusters, Supernova Remnants and Galaxies).
