The Year 10 GCSE Astronomy class recently had the opportunity to use a professional research telescope based in Australia, as part of their core practical work for the GCSE course. This multi-million-pound resource is provided for schools to use free-of-charge thanks to the Faulkes Telescope Project. The class were able to control the Telescope in real-time to collect images of a nebula, galaxies and star clusters. Special mention to Zak Citron and Aron Gardner for their excellent work processing the images!
NGC 1325 is a spiral galaxy 75 million light years away
M79 is a globular cluster in our Milky Way galaxy (see above image)
NGC 1535 is a planetary nebula
