M100



M100 is located in the Virgo cluster at a distance of 55million light years, it is one of the brightest and closest galaxies within the cluster. It's a spiral galaxy with a pronounced bar at its centre.  Quite a few supernovas have been found here, the most recent being in 2019, designated SN 2019ehk which was discovered on 29th April.  The LRGB image represents 12.3 hours integration time and was taken with my Esprit 150.
