Welcome to the Galaxies Section of the Webb Deep-Sky Society. Our role is to promote visual observation and scientific imaging of galaxies by amateur astronomers.
Galaxy of the Month
Below is our current Galaxy of the Month. These are galaxies that we feel are particular worthy of your precious observing time. We have an archive of these articles that stretch back to the beginning of 2011. You can browse them, or search for specific objects and constellations in the Galaxy of the Month archives.
Your observations (sketches, images or observing notes) of any of these objects are very welcome.
For those that use observation planning software
We have plans available for all the Galaxy of the Month pieces from 2011 onwards to make it easier to find the galaxies we have covered so far.
