Description

Has been ages since I've done a galaxy, was a nice change from all of the nebulae as of late even if it was just some older data I never got around to processing. This is Messier 63, also known as the Sunflower Galaxy. A great little galaxy with tons and tons of dust extending out of it brought out by the 15 hours of exposure for this image. What a lovely dust bunny :)
