Below are a few sample images taken by BCOlabs. There is a mixture of solar system objects and deep space objects taken by the researchers in BCOlabs.
They were taken with either the 16’’ or 10’’ telescope from CIT-Blackrock Castle Observatory using either the science cameras or with a webcam.

A different exposure for NGC 5985, a spiral galaxy, is the largest of three galaxies located in the Draco constellation and is thought to lie roughly 100 million lights years away
A Lunar close up using the science cameras at BCO. The region of the moon visible in this image is Mare Fecunditatis to the left, Mare Nectaris to the right and Mare Tranquilitatis to the top.

M101 or the Pinwheel galaxy. It’s a very large Galaxy (170,000 lights across) about 21 million lights years away. It is almost twice the size of our own Milky Way
Messier object M74. This spiral galaxy is located between 30-40 million light years away and is roughly the same size as our own Milky Way Galaxy
Messier Object M64. This is also called the Black Eye Galaxy and consists of a medium aged star population surrounded by dust clouds
M1: The Crab Nebula is a supernova remnant and pulsar wind nebula in the constellation of Taurus. Located at a distance of about 6,500 light-years from Earth, the nebula is part of the Perseus Arm of the Milky Way Galaxy
