Milwaukee Astronomical Society

Showcase

This is the MAS astrophotography gallery which displays some of the images taken by our members. We hope to get so many that we have to start cycling the images through, just to keep the server space down. Visit often! The images taken from the observatory demonstrate the light-grabbing power of the CCD camera, even in a light polluted environment like New Berlin, WI.

MAS members, we are looking for your images!  It's as easy as emailing them to:

MAS Showcase - This is the launching pad to view our images taken of distant Messier objects.  This area is special in that it showcases the power of the Observatory equipment in gathering these images.  A project to gather images of all 110 Messier objects from our observatory location was begun in Sept 2015 and it will take at least a full year to gather images of all these objects  Come see our progress.

Messier Showcase - This is a reordered list of the MAS Showcase to make it easier to locate specific Messier object images.
