More Salman Sharpless objects
Spend some time with another dozen celestial wonders.
May 26, 2009
The July issue of Astronomy features longtime astroimager Dean Salman. One of his passions is to record the many faint objects in the Sharpless Catalog. Most Sharpless targets lie beyond the visual range for all but the largest amateur telescopes. Fortunately, charge-coupled device (CCD) technology has made photographing the objects in this catalog more realistic. And, as the image gallery below reveals, the Sharpless Catalog contains gems that are intricate, delicate, and beautiful.
