Deep-sky objects through the eyes of an Austrian imager

Bernhard Hubl has photographed everything from Messier objects to obscure galaxy clusters, but those off the beaten path are his favorite.

05_NGC-6910
NGC 6910 is a bright but often-overlooked open star cluster embedded in the nebulosity around Gamma Cygni. (Total exposure time: 186 minutes)
In the April issue, Astronomy showcased the stunning astrophotography of Bernhard Hubl. Hubl has been imaging for more than 20 years and goes after all types of deep-sky objects. Still, he is most known for an unusual object choice; He prefers those targets most others often overlook, including open star clusters, distant galaxy group groups, and dark nebulae.

But four pages only provided a taste of Hubl’s vast library of work. Below are 10 more images that cover the gamut of deep-sky catalogs and make up some of the imager’s most recent and favorite pieces. And if you want to see even more, visit Hubl’s website, www.astrophoton.com.
