NGC 6188 - DRAGONS OF ARA
APOD LOGO.png

Immortal Kombat

The Dragons of Ara, as this nebula is more commonly known, is located about 4000 light years away in the constellation of Ara.
It is a massive star forming region, the most recent of which was likely triggered by winds and supernova explosions, from previous generations of massive stars, that swept up and compressed the molecular gas. 

This image has won the prestigious David Malin Award in Astrophotography and the International Dark Sky Association's Deep Sky Award for 2022.
It has also been published across magazines in Australia and overseas.

Consisting of 15 hours of imaging time over two months, this has been one of my best images so far and my most requested print

When Worlds Collide

Amazing things happen when science meets creativity.
Discoveries and inventions happen, but it can also create beautiful art.

This image is an inverted version of "Immortal Kombat" and reminds me of an aerial view of beatiful azure waves crashing on to red sandy beaches.

The pearlescent finish of the print gives it an amazing sense of depth and makes for a stunning complimentary print to the original version

Dragon Duo

Most deep space nebula images are made up of 3 colour channels with a specific filter assigned to each channel, Hydrogen alpha to Green, Sulphur to Red and Oxygen to blue.
This creates a full colour image.

However, with only two filters, Oxygen gets assigned to both the blue and green channel which gives the image amazing blue/pink tones to create a bicolour image.
These images have more natural colour tones if we could see them with our naked eye.

As with the other prints, the tones work beautifully with the pearl sheen of the paper.
