M51 – The Whirlpool Galaxy


M51-Whirlpool Galaxy on 9/28/07

This is a very long exposure of a very faint object. I’ve tried to image it before, but it’s really dark with decent seeing tonight and so I figured now would be a good time to try. You can see, if you look at the pixelization that this image has been level tweaked extensively to bring out the detail in the galaxy. This brings my Messier Album count up to 24 out of 110.
