A photo of  the "M51 Galaxy", in Ursa Major, photographed from St. John's  on June 19, 2010 by Tim Caruk.

M51, the Whirlpool galaxy, has been estimated to be 37 million light years away and can be seen near the Big Dipper. The galaxy and it's interacting companion NGC 5195 were imaged here with a Nikon D5000 Camera through my 6 inch refractor scope on April 19, 2010. I combined 114  30 sec images taken at ISO 3200..

The Lagoon nebula (M8) in Sagittarius and it's embedded star cluster can be seen in small telescopes in dark skies. New stars are currently forming as the Hydrogen gas condenses.  I took this image on June 17, 2010 with a Nikon D5000 camera through a 120 mm refractor scope..
