With no more images in the pipeline and the bushfire smoke worsening again in South West Sydney – and showing no sign of abating – I thought I’d choose ten of my best astro-images over the last decade.
Well – after a recount – make that eleven images….
Some would also say it really isn’t even the end of the decade yet. 🙄
Above is the very beautiful M20, the Trifid Nebula in Sagittarius, taken on 2019-09-03.
Happy new year! 🎈 🎈 🎈
If you’ve read this far into my post, thank you for looking at Cosmic Focus over the last year (or more) and for the kind comments you may have left. My best wishes, wherever you live on our Pale Blue Dot.
Finally, my personal ambitions for the ‘twenty-twenties’ are: (i) to improve my astro-photography techniques; (ii) to capture a total solar eclipse; (iii) to image the entire Messier and Caldwell lists that are visible from my latitude; (iv) to survive climate change; and (v) to fly to the Moon and back.
🚀 I can dream……………………………… 🤩
