Something wrong with the Trifid nebula link. The others work. Nice photos!

There ya go! One has to add a ".jpg" behind the link, and then put the whole thing inside img tags. As you can see, it creates a new problem: your originals are HUGE, which makes for awkward viewing.

Or, you can add a “width=X” (or “height=X” attribute, or both) to the “img” BB code tag (“X” is the width/height in pixels) so that the image(s) fit(s) nicely on the page.  The applicable BB code is:
Code:
[img width=600]https://i.imgur.com/3oT0mqf.jpg[/img]

[img width=600]https://i.imgur.com/HI2LSnI.jpg[/img]

[img width=600]https://i.imgur.com/dwDrjWo.jpg[/img]

The above code renders like this:






@Tweefo:  Nice pictures, indeed!  You might want to copy the above example code into a text file on your desktop for easy future reference/reverence.

Super pics Tweefo!  Cool, especially your capture of Centaurus A. The dust lane looks to my eyes quite a bit like a femur, complete with ball joint. Incidentally, I offer five virtual jellybeans to the reader who can spot why the name "femur galaxy" may well be more apt than the current "hamburger galaxy".
