Welcome to the EFOSC2 gallery of pretty astronomical objects

The targets of this gallery have been chosen from the 2mass large galaxy atlas, plus a few other additions. The idea is to observe objects that fill nicely 1 EFOSC2 field (ca. 5x5 arcmin). The objects are observed strictly at twilight, in binning 1x1 when possible, and in the filters B, V, and R. The aquisition is done in R, and from the aquisition image the exposure times are estimated. Feel free to contribute to the gallery: send the three FITS files to isaviane@eso.org, who will process them and put them online. Due to the brightness of the sky at twilight, a small dynamical range is available, but we try our best to enhance subtle details of the objects. Objects south of DEC=+30 were selected.

Most of the observed objects on this page were observed at the ESO 3.6m telescope. New additions to the gallery from the NTT will also appear here, with a note. Unless stated otherwise, the images come from EFOSC2 at the 3.6m.

NB: broken links just mean that the image is not available yet. Just scroll the page to find the galaxies that have been observed.
