“Welcome to Loke Kun Tan’s Astrophotography website which displays photographic images of celestial objects adorning our night skies. Some of the objects are visible to the naked eye, such as the bright and spectacular Comets Hyakutake and Hale-Bopp. Other objects, such as gaseous nebulae and galaxies, can be extremely faint and are visually evident only in telescopes or through long exposure photography.” Did that grab your attention? It did mine, I sure couldn’t think of a better way to say it.
Now let me tell you about these pictures; they are phenomenal. You can even choose what kind of things you want to look at: Comets, Galaxies, Nebulae, Star Clusters, or H-Alpha.
I love the Nebula section, the pictures are in color and my favorite is NGC7000 North American and IC5070 Pelican Nebulae.
The color photos really take your breath away, and make great wallpaper for your desktop. However, please don’t just set these images as wallpaper, read the copyright info and ask.
