M 51, also known as the Tourbillon galaxy (Whirlpool Galaxy in English) is a couple of galaxies located around 27.4 million light years in the constellation of Hunting dogs.
This famous couple is composed of a regular spiral galaxy massive whose diameter is estimated at 100 000 light years and a small irregular galaxy .
Spring star, it is one of the most famous galaxies of astrophotographers, with very pronounced colors and presenting beautiful nebulae, accentuated here by the joint use of a Halpha Hydrogen filter.
Welcome to this site dedicated to the presentation of my astronomical images and sharing this passion.
