TAAS Image Gallery

The TAAS Image Gallery was created to showcase astro-images created by TAAS members. To go straight to the Image Gallery click here.

The Image Gallery is divided into sub-galleries arranged by season and object type so that someone interested in seeing images of nebula to observe in the fall would look in the gallery titled ˇ§Fall Nebula.ˇ¨ There are similar galleries for galaxies and nebulae for each season. Each gallery can hold up to eighteen images at a time. Once the limit of eighteen has been reached for a particular gallery, older images will be deleted to make room for newer and, presumably better images.

How to submit your images

TAAS members wishing to submit images for consideration can send JPEGs to Images should be no larger than 1000 pixels on the largest side and must have the following information:

  • Object name
  • Location where the image was made
  • Optical equipment used (scope size, model)
  • Camera
  • Mount
  • Number and duration of sub-frames
  • Processing details such as software-used.

Alternatively, if a member has a personal Flicker account that contains the image they would like to have in a gallery, they can send a link to the same address. However, the image caption in the flicker account must contain the aforementioned information.
