M51, the whirpool galaxy, located close to the big dipper, is a face on spiral galaxy that is interacting with a smaller galaxy. This galaxy is quite breathtaking due to its highly visible spiral shape and overall brightness. Image was taken by collecting approximately 12 minutes of data from 30 second exposures. Obtained using a Canon DSLR at prime focus through a Celestron Nexstar 8se telescope with f/6.3 focal reducer on stock alt-az mount. #astrophotography #galaxy #m51 #spiralgalaxy #nightsky #heavens #nexstar8se #stars #galactic #interaction
