>>> Whirlpool Galaxy <<<
Placed in the vastness of space at a distance of 23.16 million light years from earth the Whirlpool Galaxy is a small but very beautiful looking spiral galaxy. Also known as M51 or NGC5194, the light from this galaxy that i have captured in this image is 23 million years old, which some may find this hard to understand but the further away an object is in space further back in time we are looking at it. First clear night in a long time for some deepsky Astrophotography and am happy with this result.
Total exposure is 45 minutes. Captured on 24th Feb 2019 Location > Ballintra, Co Donegal
