As you can see, there aren't many images of galaxies here, at least compared to the number of photographs in the nebula section for example. This is mainly because lately I have been specializing in wide-field imaging, and most galaxies with a very few exceptions not only don't require wide field imaging, but they in fact are usually very small - small as seen from Earth. Still, every once in a while I do like to photograph galaxies, and eventually I may start experimenting with long focal length astroimaging, in which case, "tiny" galaxies could become a regular target for me.
Images are shown in chronological order, showing first the most recent ones.

Pre-CCD Galaxy Images
Following are the images I captured during what I could describe as my "Introduction to Astrophotography" period. All of them were taken with Canon DSLR cameras, and while some people are doing amazing work with DSLR cameras - especially now that you can easily add cooling to them and the CMOS chips are getting better - in my case you can probably see there's a before and after in my images as I switched from DSLR to CCD. I mainly make this division because generally speaking, the images you see below are those of a person who's mainly learning the basics of astrophotography and astroimage processing, and none of the images should be used as a reference for anything other than seeing the type of images I was producing when I started doing astrophotography. I no longer do many of the things I used to do then, and certainly I have also learned a great deal about things I should do that I wasn't doing before.
