Digital Astronomy Gallery

The Fusion Energy from Space

Welcome to my digital astronomy gallery

in Japanese

I am one of the many amateur astronomers in Japan. Although my observatory is located in the urban area of Tokyo, the magnificent dynamic range of a 16bits CCD camera and the new image processing technology have allowed me to shoot these marvelous deep sky images! I would like to present a selection of my most spectacular images. Most of these pictures are published in various Japanese astronomy magazines; Tenmon-Guide, Gekkan-Tenmon, SkyWatcher and Interactive Astronomy. These works were mainly done with my 31cm (12 inches) Newtonian and HPC-1 CCD camera of Spectra-Source (TC-215 CCD chip; 1k x 1k pixels), SBIG ST-7E, ST-6 and ST-5 (for the planets).
