M51 The Whirlpool Spiral Galaxy photos, also known as NGC-5194, Two colliding Galaxies in the Constellation of Canes Venatici, a few degrees from the end star in handle of the Big Dipper. The smaller companion that M51 is colliding with is galaxy NGC-5195. M51 sits at 23 Million Light Years away. this is a 17 hour exposure through my 16" scope & Qhy8 Cooled CCD camera & Modified Canon Rebel Xsi captured in 2010 & 2011. I can see lots of dust lane structure running through the tidal tail as well as lots of faint background galaxies behind the tidal tail!
