We are committed to providing products to support amateur astronomers, however we can’t help but be enthralled by the magnificent images from the Hubble Space Telescope, or HST. Images such as these are what drew many of us into the fascinating world of astronomy and inspire us to go out and observe for ourselves.
On our Magnets product page we provide a short description of each of the objects along with catalogue listings and coordinates to help you locate the objects yourself. Some of these objects will be visible with amateur equipment and some will not. For those that are, keep in mind that they will look very different. Obviously Hubble is very large and has the advantage of not looking out through our atmosphere. Also, these images are composites of several images and include light emissions that are not visible to the naked eye. It is, nonetheless, thrilling to find, for example, the Orion Nebula with a pair of binoculars, or locate the Eagle Nebula with the naked eye (if you happen to live in a very dark area).
