M106 Galaxy

Galactic harvest continues. Here again I focused my scope to previously photographed DSO. The galaxy is located in constellation Canes Venatici (hunting dogs) not far from famous constellation Ursa Major (great bear) and it’s approximately 24 million light-years far from us.


M106 Galaxy

This spiral galaxy is located in constellation Canes Venatici (hunting dogs) and it’s approximately 23 million light years away from earth.

Picture is not optimal, during post-processing I notices triangular stars. So next year I will point my telescope to M106 and collect the photons coming from there again.
