Ok i went to the website. i repeat GREAT imaging, no doubt about it, but can't be compared to Hubble's, Deep infrared telescopes's etc
And yes, Millions dollars worth space-based telescopes are BETTER, they get much more CLEARER pictures, can see FARTHER away, and can reveal things
really out of amateur astrophotographer's league. But that doesn't imply amateur observations are bad, not at all.
And those better images from several INTERNATIONAL telescopes are freely availabe in their RAW format so astronomers who know how to do their stuff
can see what the heck is up there.
There has to be a balance between critical questioning and common knowledge, it's just that that knowledge takes time (A LOT) to learn. But totally
worth it when you can fire up a picture that for most people is gray goo with black background and see massive intergalactic interactions,
superluminical jet's from Black Holes, etc.. Real science is really exciting!
