Welcome to Rolf Wahl Olsen's astrophotography galleries of the beautiful Southern skies, taken from my observatory in Auckland, New Zealand. I enjoy taking images that are unusual, either being of a rarely imaged object, or a familiar object presented in a new way. On these pages you will find deep sky images of exotic objects like the circumstellar disc of Beta Pictoris, gravitational lenses, quasars, distant galaxy clusters and extragalactic globulars. These obscure targets often have a very interesting story to tell.
I also offer popular large format posters for sale with some of my best astrophotography images.
