Astronomy Photos by Trevor Barry

Blogged by Xiao Sun on March 4, 2010 and tagged with Sample Images, Jupiter, Saturn.

Today I received an e-mail from Australian amateur astronomer Trevor Barry, who is based in Broken Hill, far west of New South Wales. For years Barry has been obsessed with astronomy. He built several telescopes & mounts and accomplished his own observatory with DMK 21AU04.AS as the imaging component. With his fine equipment and excellent skills, Barry has been able to take some breathtaking planetary and deep sky images.

In addition, Barry supported NASA's Cassini mission by supplying image data of SED's (Saturn Electrostatic Discharge) to the Cassini RPWS (Radio & Plasma Wave Science) team. His work was officially recognized by NASA and covered by many media afterwards.

Here I select a few images from his gallery. For more visit his web at

Many thanks to Trevor Barry! Keep up good work!
