This season was kind of unlucky to me. I planned to shoot longer focal length images at this Autumn with my 12" Meade. Unfortunately there was serious technical problems with my gears and I was forced to move to a wide field instrumentation. All this took lots of time and top of that, the weather up here, 65N, wasn't very supportive. My main work for the autumn season 2013was a rarely imaged supernova remnant in Cygnus known as G65.3+5.7SNR
A collection of my images from the Autumn season 2013 as a poster.

Some new experimental work
I made a series of artworks out of my astronomical images by flipping and rotating the image. Every picture is made out of the single astronomical image of mine. The result shows the Nebula at many different orientation simultaneously. All my experiments can be found from my PORTFOLIO Do you recognized what has been the original astronomical object?
Vision XII, from the series Visions of Space
This is one of my artworks based on an original astronomical photograph shot by me.
Image belongs to a large series of images called Visions of Space.
Note. Image is manipulated but all the elements in it are from a real astronomical object.
I got my sixth NASA APOD (Astronomy Picture of the Day)
I have made several 3D-studies out of my astronomical images. Couple of my animations gets widely published, here are few samples:
