Whirlpool Galaxy

Got about 20 minutes of exposure for M51, the Whirlpool Galaxy. About 31 million light-years away. M51 is the big spiral galaxy, and M51b is the smaller galaxy interacting with it.

I’m very excited about the amount of detail in the spirals and the different color visible in the cores.
