Galaxy M101 in the constellation Ursa Major

This fine spiral galaxy is an example of an Arp galaxy (Halton Arp).  Data acquired at the New Forest Observatory using the Hyperstar III on a C11 reflector.  Data processed by Noel Carboni in Florida U.S.A.  Noel has managed to bring out some of the very faint outer arm structure in this one helped by 5-hours worth of 10-minute subs from the light-grabbing Hyperstar III.
