Introduction

Pluto's Full Rotation

Galaxies and Nebulas are awesome.

Open and Globular Star Clusters are equally wonderful to watch.

However, nothing compares to the excitement of seeing a distant world´s surface. There´s a distinct enjoyment when one can resolve the topographic features of the heavenly real estate.

This is a tour of the Solar System from a whole new perspective.

It´s an amateur astronomers´s take on our planetary neighborhood, from Mercury to Pluto.

All major bodies were photographed and commented, some for the first time ever in unprecedented detail.
 
HMIR

While trying to find ways to see the entire Solar System, SPACENOW developed a novel method of image processing with the employment of three software programs.
Named HMIR, this technique breaks away with some established rules of astro imaging with results that proved excellent including a surprising level of sharpness and resolution regardless of the distance to the object targeted.

The unorthodoxy of HMIR is better understood in the HMIR pre-requisites described on this website.
