M101-Pinwheel Galaxy on 4/11/10

After finishing M51, I took a bunch of shots of M101 – the pinwheel galaxy. I’d like to add some more time to this one, but it turned out pretty nice and I captured at least 4 other galaxies in the image.

Finally, I bagged 7 more Messier’s visually for my Messier pin (just 15 or so to go) and then looked at Saturn for a bit before heading to bed.
