DMI is a source of high quality photographs of stars,
galaxies and nebulae taken with some of the world's finest optical telescopes and by talented photographers using ordinary cameras. The images cover most of the sky on all angular scales, from the nearby constellations to the Milky Way and far distant galaxies.

Many of these pictures have been made by David Malin, mainly from plates taken with the telescopes of the Anglo-Australian Observatory. These pictures focus on stars and star-forming regions, globular clusters and the endless variety of galaxies. Other pictures, of star trails and constellations, were made with more modest equipment, both by David Malin and his associates David Miller and Akira Fujii.

The pictures are divided according to their source and often according to subject matter as well. The individual pages below take you on a tour of the distant universe with professional telescopes. David Miller's images are beautiful views of the nearest star at the beginning and end of the day and the moon, set in the Australian landscape. In between are the constellations, the star colours vividly captured by Akira Fujii.

A new series of intriguing and attractive images are photomicrographs of crystals. These are images of science but are presented as abstract art. All the images on these pages are available as high resolution digital files as well as prints.

Amazing pictures :) I think I went to this observatory (Australian-Anglo) on a school excursion (geez about 20 years ago.. :) )
