Messier 63 - Sunflower Galaxy by Paul Hutchinson
Messier 63 - Sunflower Galaxy

Wikipedia : Messier 63 (also known as M63, NGC 5055, or the Sunflower Galaxy) is a spiral galaxy in the constellation Canes Venatici consisting of a central disc surrounded by many short spiral arm segments. M63 is part of the M51 Group, a group of galaxies that also includes M51 (the 'Whirlpool Galaxy').

Messier 106 (NGC 4258) by Paul Hutchinson
Messier 106 (NGC 4258)

with NGC 4248, NGC 4232, NGC 4231, NGC 4226, NGC 4217

Wikipedia : Messier 106 (also known as NGC 4258) is an intermediate spiral galaxy in the constellation Canes Venatici. It was discovered by Pierre Méchain in 1781. M106 is at a distance of about 22 to 25 million light-years away from Earth. It is also a Seyfert II galaxy. Due to x-rays and unusual emission lines detected, it is suspected that part of the galaxy is falling into a supermassive black hole in the center. NGC 4217 is a possible companion galaxy of Messier 106. A Type II supernova was observed in this galaxy in May 2014.

NGC 2403 (Caldwell 7) by Paul Hutchinson
NGC 2403 (Caldwell 7)

NGC 2403 (also Caldwell 7) is an intermediate spiral galaxy in the constellation Camelopardalis. NGC 2403 is an outlying member of the M81 Group, and is approximately 8 million light-years distant. It bears a striking similarity to M33, being about 50,000 light years in diameter and containing numerous star-forming H II regions.

Messier 31 The Andromeda Nebula (Galaxy) by Jason Wiseman

Celestron CPC C9.25
Nikon D90 Modded
DSS, CS6
385/470 30 sec subs @ iso 1600
Darks, Flats, Bias.

The Andromeda Galaxy was discovered long before we knew there were other galaxy's. First believed to be a nebula within The Milky Way, until Edwin Hubble proved that is was too far away to be within our Galaxy, that day the human race discovered thing were much bigger than we previously thought.

2.537 million light years distant, 220,000 light years wide. With an apparent Dimension of 3.2 deg and a apparent magnitude of 3.4 .

Data captured on Dartmoor, this image was featured in November 2015 Sky@Night Magazine in the Hotshots section.
