Whirlpool galaxy

By nytecam
Taken earlier this week from my garden via my guided Meade telescope with Starlight Xpress Lodestar astro-cam* in 6 min exp.

The Whirlpool galaxy [M51] is so far away that light took 23 million years to reach the camera and M51 is considered a nearby galaxy! It's BIG out there Wink

*my cam is not listed on forum so dummy entry made to pass system!
