M57 an edge- on Starburst galaxy

Recommended Posts

It is a nice galaxy but when I last imaged M57 it looked more Ring Nebulaish...😄

I'm now going to have to ID your wee beasty to find out more about it!

Edit: I'm embarrassed for not even recognising M82  🤪

That above is clearly M57. It just depends what catalog one is using.

Maybe in Messier catalog it is labeled as M82, but in "Mess with people's heads on your favorite astronomy forum website" catalog it is clearly labeled as M57 :D
