The picture is shot with Astro modified Canon T2i and eight inch Meade SC telescope with focal size 2032mm. 

Total 2.5 hours of integration in chilly Windy Bortle 3 Dark website in Squamish BC.

The amateur photographer has mentioned that “it took him three hours to balance this 10 kg set up on Eqr pro mount in order to guide perfectly at that focal length on windy dark night.”

He added by saying that “Collimation fell apart due to a drop in temperature to -10. But when 1st sub popped up camera screen, I was stunned to have photographed from 31 million light-years away from earth!”

The Whirlpool Galaxy is also referred to as Messier 51a, M51a, and NGC 5194

The galaxy and its companion, NGC 5195, smaller galaxy, NGC 5195, has been circling round M51 in a gravitational collision for the final half billion years or so. It’s now barely behind M51.

The star bridge connecting them and the mud clouds are masking a part of NGC 5195 are each a results of the continued gravitational interplay, which is able to ultimately trigger the 2 galaxies to merge within the upcoming time.
