🇬🇧 The Whirlpool Galaxy, also known as Messier 51a, M51a, and NGC 5194, is an interacting grand-design spiral galaxy.⠀ It lies in the constellation Canes Venatici, and was the first galaxy to be classified as a spiral galaxy. Its distance is estimated to be 23 million light-years away from Earth. ⠀ NGC 5195 (also known as Messier 51b or M51b) is a dwarf galaxy that is interacting with the Whirlpool Galaxy. Together, the two galaxies are one of the most widely studied interacting galaxy pairs.⠀ ⠀ -------------------------------------------⠀ ⠀ 🇬🇷 Ο Γαλαξίας της Δίνης (Whirlpool Galaxy) επίσης γνωστός ως Μεσιέ 51α, Μ51α και NGC 5194 είναι ένας σπειροειδής γαλαξίας με καθαρή δομή βραχιόνων που αλληλεπιδρά με τον γαλαξία NGC 5195.⠀ Βρίσκεται στον αστερισμό των Θηρευτικών Κυνών και ήταν ο πρώτος γαλαξίας που ταξινομήθηκε ως σπειροειδής γαλαξίας. Η απόστασή του εκτιμάται στα 23 εκατομμύρια έτη φωτός από τη Γη.⠀ Ο NGC 5195 (επίσης γνωστός ως Μεσιέ 51b ή M51b) είναι ένας νάνος γαλαξίας που αλληλεπιδρά με τον Γαλαξία της Δίνης. Μαζί, οι δύο γαλαξίες είναι ένα από τα πιο ευρέως μελετημένα αλληλεπιδρώντα ζεύγη γαλαξιών.⠀ ⠀ -------------------------------------------⠀ ⠀ Equipment used:⠀ -Skywatcher Explorer 130P-DS⠀ -Skywatcher NEQ6 Pro⠀ -Nikon D5200⠀ ⠀ -------------------------------------------⠀ ⠀ Acquisition:⠀ -801 x 30s Lights⠀ -ISO 3200⠀ -60 Darks⠀ -60 Biases⠀ -60 Flats⠀ -6.67 hours integration time⠀ ⠀ -------------------------------------------⠀ ⠀ Location:⠀ #Chios, #Greece⠀ ⠀ -------------------------------------------⠀ ⠀ #astrophotography #backyardastronomy #backyardastrophotography #astrophotographers #deepsky #dso #fs_longexpo #stargazing #skymasters #longexposure_shots #photooftheday #astrophoto #nightimages #natgeospace #nsasfo #telscope #ig_astrophotography #iamskywatcher #skywatchertelescope #neq6 #130pds #nikonastrophotography #nikon #d5200 #NikonGreece #NikonEurope #CreateYourLight #WhirlpoolGalaxy

50 light frames + 10 dark frames stacked using Starry Sky Stacker. My first galaxy shot using Rokinon 135mm, the Whirlpool galaxy and the M51b. I know it's not the best one out there but I'm very surprised what this focal length can capture. Tracked using iOptron skyguider pro. Shot using an unmodded Sony a7iii mounted on iOptron Skyguider Pro. 60X 30" ; F4; ISO1250 . . . #darksky #backyardastrophotography #deepskyastrophotography #cygnus #ursamajor #sonyalphasclub #sonya7iii #samyanglensglobal #samyanglensgermany #cosmos #whirlpoolgalaxy #ioptronskyguiderpro #rolleiastroklarfilter #pinoyphotographer #galaxy #ngc5194 #ngc5195 #sonyimages #universe #starrysky #starryskystacker #messier51b #messier51a #messier51whirlpoolgalaxy

A galaxy far far away (23.16 million lightyears actually, let's see your phone take a better picture). That's no... actually it is a moon. The moon might be a common subject for me until I get better equipment lol #whirlpoolgalaxy #m51 #dirtcheapastronomy 🌌

The moon, the Milky Way, and Ursa Major. M51 the whirlpool galaxy is next. The clouds tonight made a wonderful juxtaposition in front of the Milky Way creating an artistic long exposure photo. Sometime later on in this month I will be going to an area with minimal light pollution and I’ll try to grab the core of the Milky Way. #astrophotography #canonphotography #nature #milkyway #ursamajor #whirlpoolgalaxy #moon #beginnerartist #urbanphotography

The Whirlpool Galaxy, my first attempt for this object, situated at more than 23 millions light years from us, and about the size of our own galaxy, you can see also at the left top corner the IC 4263 (very little and faint) that is another galaxy at 130 millions light years and it's the farthest object I've ever captured. F/8,3 120mm skywatcher. 50 (6 min exposures) I think this is my best achievement this year captured from my backyard in a very light polluted area. #whirlpoolgalaxy #IC4263 #backyardastronomy #astrophotography #astrofotografia #space #espacioprofundo #galaxiadelremolino

I finally start to master my Celestron SCT 8 telescope a little better, more than one year after buying it ! It’s only the fourth time that I use it. This is a picture of the Whirlpool Galaxy, M51 in the Messier catalogue that I took last night. This galaxy is about 23 million light-years away from Earth. In fact, this is an interacting spiral galaxy with a smaller irregular galaxy. A really nice deep sky object !

La galaxia Remolino es una galaxia espiral localizada en la constelación Canes Venatici. En realidad son dos galaxias en interacción. Es una de las más brillantes galaxias del firmamento, visible con unos simples prismáticos. Se encuentra a unos 23 millones de años Luz de la Tierra, y su diámetro aproximado es de 76.000 años luz. Se cree que estas dos galaxias en interacción, colisionaron hace unos 600 millones de años, y volverán a hacerlo varias veces más hasta fusionarse en una sola galaxia. Nos muestra cómo será el futuro lejano de nuestra Vía Láctea y nuestra Vecina Andrómeda. #fotografiaastronomica  #astrofotos  #astrofotografia  #astronomicalphotography  #astrophotos  #astrophotography  #galaxia  #galaxias   #galaxy  #astropics  #m51 #messier51 #galaxiaremolino #whirlpoolgalaxy

Messier 51a & 51b🌌💫 aka. The Whirlpool Galaxy | It’s been a tough 9 weeks not having the opportunity to photograph wildlife, especially this time of year. But I’ve managed to still do some shooting. I turned my attention to learning how to photograph the stars! And after 6 weeks here’s my results. The first image was taken this week, the 2nd Image was my first attempt. I’m using my normally wildlife setup with a star tracker, all from my back garden. #photography #photographer #nature #wild #stars #astro #astrophotography #physics #galaxy #space #messier51 #m51 #whirlpoolgalaxy #far #lightyears #universe #space #ioptron #ioptronskyguiderpro #sony #sonya7riii #sony200600 #covidphotography #covidphotodiaries

Adding more data of m51 from existing captures are a common technique to enhance detail.

Post processing is a dark art. I’m not sure if this is something people do a lot, but I decided to try something I’d not seen done before. I didn’t gather any extra data, but I took my final processed image from previously, created a new luminance layer with it, stretched it a bit more heavily with extra contrast and then blended it in to bring out some “details”. It washed out the colour a bit, so I bumped up the saturation. It’s a subtle-ish change but I think a good improvement. What do you think? Swipe for the before. (To be clear I have seen a luminance layer used, but usually with additional or new data or narrowband for the extra clarity) #astrophotography #astronomy #astrophoto #astrophotographer #galaxy #whirlpoolgalaxy

The spiral galaxy Messier 51 imaged on 10 and 12 April 2020. From Earth we look almost exactly on the axis of rotation of this galaxy so the spiral arms are clearly visible. The galaxy is also known as the "Whirlpool" galaxy - for an obvious reason. It is interacting with a small companion galaxy, which is obvious in this picture as well. Camera: Canon EOS1000D (a); Objective: Williams Megrez 72 refractor, session controlled and tracked using a Raspberry pi and the package #stellarmate ( #ekos).

In the strange, pandemic, times we're in, we have to take the advice on social distancing very seriously: https://youtu.be/A5GArkH9mic But for anyone that still feel the distancing is taking it too far, I want to send a message. A warning, with a simple example what could come to pass if we don’t take this seriously. What we can see in the YouTube link above is a cataclysmic failure in social distancing. A disaster of galactic proportion. Happening live, right now!… well, about 23 million years ago. Anyway! That's all you'll get from me when it comes to social advice. Perhaps just as good. Be warned, stay safe. And may the dark side be with you! #socialdistancing #covid19 #coronavirus #astrophotography #amateurastronomy #m51a #m51b #m51 #whirlpoolgalaxy #ngc4490 #ngc4485 #cocoongalaxy

Last night I photographed the Whirlpool Galaxy. This is my first of 2 or 3 nights collecting data on this galaxy so I can get the best results as possible. I collected 52 minutes worth of a bunch of different length exposures because I’m still having tracking problems. Despite that my final image still came out super good! A huge improvement from last year. Also while I was setting up I saw a C-17 for the first time fly over my house which I thought was cool. #space #astrophotography #whirlpool #whirlpoolgalaxy #galaxy #star #stars #telescope #c17globemaster #c17

The Whirlpool Galaxy M51🌌 — This galaxy just looks amazing and I’m so happy with how this image turned out! We all know and love the ‘big galaxy’ called Andromeda, but when it comes to “smaller” galaxies I’ve got to say this is one of my favorites. The amazing thing about this galaxy, is that this isn’t just one galaxy, but actually two different galaxies which are colliding with each other. Just imagine living on a planet inside one of the two galaxies.. your entire night sky would be filled with the other galaxy which is literally crashing into you. Just image that for a second... because in a few million years, we would be in the same situation with the Andromeda galaxy which is on a collision course with our galaxy. Kinda scary but also really fascinating. — A funny thing about this image; I shot around 6 hours of Halpha images for this galaxy to make it more ‘pop’ out of the image. However, the Halpha images actually made the final image way more noisy and I had to make the decision to throw all my Halpha data away.. But it’s good to know that I can only really use my widefield setup to take Halpha data of big nebulæ, just another learning experience😌 But that’s it for now, I hope you all have a great weekend!

I had another challenge the other night. Took a while finding the #whirlpoolgalaxy it's even dimmer than the #pinwheelgalaxy and about 1/3 the size! 😭😭 I ended up uploading JPGs to nova.astrometry.net to make sure I was in the right area in the sky as I don't have a guide scope at the moment. Only 30 mins of subs. Has anyone got any advice for removing the green colour cast from the CLS filter? Also really need to work on editing consistency #sigma150600c #canon7dmarkii #skytech #galaxyphotography #deepskystacker #deepskyastrophotography #astrophotography #astro #astrobackyard #space #stars #milkyway

Autostacked by the Live-Mode of the ZWO AISAIR PRO, using bias, dark and flat frames. 2.5 hours of integration time, 60s frames @ iso 1600 with canon eos 77d I‘m excited what i‘ll get when i process it. I also have another 3 hours of data collected by the ASIAIR PRO. Seems to work good with a DSLR. I‘ll share the results with you in a few days.

The Whirlpool Galaxy (should be called The Hungry Nautilus Galaxy) The second picture is my first attempt from early last year. This target is extremely popular in part because we get to see the two galaxies interact. Each galaxy leaves a trail of stars in its wake as it moves toward the other.

The Whirlpool Galaxy (M51 and its companion M51b) from my driveway last night/this morning. Near the Big Dipper, this is a spiral galaxy about 23 M Light years away, is about 60,000 light years in diameter and has about 100 billion stars in it. We’re seeing it face on so the spiral arms (lanes of stars and starburst regions interspersed with dust) are obvious. The companion, M51b is a dwarf galaxy and the two have passed through each other at least once, leaving a bridge of gas and dust between the two. The interaction between the two have left the smaller galaxy disrupted and the Whirlpool’s spiral arms distorted.

This is Messier 51, the Whirlpool Galaxy. Its known for its clearly visible spiral structure and its companion NGC 5195. This is the second galaxy image I ever took after my 81 one. Unfortunately the conditions (wind and tracking performance) weren’t ideal when I took this image, that’s my the stars aren’t quite round.

Faite hier soir. La première photo est un zoom de la seconde photo, où l'on voit quelques autres "petites" galaxies. Située à 27 millions d'al, cette galaxie est composée en fait de 2 galaxies, la principale (galaxie spirale) est la première structure spirale qui fut représentée (par l'irlandais lord Rosse), et une irrégulière. Sa taille, similaire à notre voie lactée, est estimée à 100 000 al Technique: Durée totale: 1h40 Prises de vues unitaires: 80s à 1600iso https://6rilp1.wixsite.com/astro/matos __________________________________ #astrophotography #astronomylover #astronomy #newton #eos750d #6rilastro #astrophotographie #galaxy #galaxies #whirlpoolgalaxy

The Whirlpool Galaxy, also known as Messier 51a, M51a, is an interacting grand-design spiral galaxy with a Seyfert 2 active galactic nucleus.⁠ ⁠ Follow @thespacecluster for daily posts!!⁠ Follow @thespacecluster for daily posts!!⁠ ⁠ It lies in the constellation Canes Venatici and was the first galaxy to be classified as a spiral galaxy. Its distance is estimated to be 23 million light-years away from Earth.⁠ The galaxy and its companion, NGC 5195, are easily observed by amateur astronomers, and the two galaxies may be seen with binoculars. The Whirlpool Galaxy has been extensively observed by professional astronomers, who study it to understand galaxy structure (particularly structure associated with the spiral arms) and galaxy interactions.⁠ In 1845, William Parsons, 3rd Earl of Rosse, employing a 1.8 m telescope in Ireland, found that the Whirlpool possessed a spiral structure, the first "nebula" to be known to have one. The two pictures are in the visual light (left) and in infrared light (right). ⁠ ⁠ Credit: ESA⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ #nasaphoto #stargazing #stargazinglive #stargazingabc #nebula #nebulas #nebulaart #bubblespace #bubbleclassic #spacepics #spacepictures #hubbletelescope #universe #spaceforce #spacephotos #deepskyphotography #planetarium #whirlpoolgalaxy

Whirlpool Galaxy - Messier 51 / M51 / NGC 5194 . The Whirlpool Galaxy, the larger of the two seen in this photo, is an interacting grand-design spiral galaxy. It is designated as M51a or NGC 5194. It is estimated to be 23 million light-years from Earth. It is about 76000 light-years in diameter. It is located near the eastern-most star of the "Big Dipper" constellation. It was discovered in October 1773 by Charles Messier. . The companion galaxy, is designated M51b or NGC 5195. It is a dwarf galaxy that is interacting with the Whirlpool Galaxy. It was discovered in 1781 by Pierrer Mechain. Because of its interaction with the Whirlpool Galaxy, this galaxy is distorted making its morphology difficult to classify. It is usually identified as a lenticular galaxy which means it's somewhere between an elliptical and a spiral galaxy. . This image was taken over two night in late April and early May. But, I was having issues with my processing software. . 14700 sec (~4.08 hrs) integration Celestron 6SCT and AVX Mount ZWO ASIAir controller ZWO ASI294MC Pro camera ZWO ASI120MM-S guide camera Orion Deluxe Mini 50mm guide scope Processed w Astro Pixel Processor and Luminar 4 . #messier51 #m51 #ngc5194 #ngc5195 #whirlpoolgalaxy #zwo #asiair #highpointscientific #optcorp #opteam #astrophotography #nightsky #astropixelprocessor #app #skylum #luminar4

Getting back to astrophotography during lockdown with a bit more time on my hands, even with the short nights. This one is my favourite photo that I have taken so far through my telescope. Being high in the sky and relatively easy to photograph and process makes it easier. Poor polar alignment, no guiding and lack of total integration time makes it harder. On balance I’m pretty happy with it. #astronomy #astrophotography #astrophoto #astrophotographer #astrophotographie #whirlpoolgalaxy
