(although that may not be its actual ref; it's off-centre and I think the ref is for a star or very distant galaxy behind it!)

I'm pretty sure this is not the same one that has already been posted.  You sure can see the family resemblance, though.

That is known as M101, discovered in the late 1700s and cataloged by Charles Messier (the M in the name). Located above the last two handle stars in the Big Dipper, it is visible with 10x50 binoculars from a dark site.

In case anyone was as confused by the quoted post, he's referring to the second link in the original post in this topic.

To friederbluemle, I actually don't think that one has been posted here yet. Quite striking.

Ref: 588010359625285690

Very pretty blue



With an even better picture on the SDSS site

Any lousy species ever invents the telescope and the spectroscope and looks in between the stars, what do they find? Loads of stuff; but much of it alcohol. Humanoids are the galaxy's way of getting rid of all that alcohol.
