    Right on Pursuer. I am suprised that you are able to zoom in enough to capture galaxies like that. It looks like there are two galaxies in the second shot. Is the whirlpool galaxy consuming a smaller galaxy?

    Yep your right Cruzin, but there are actually three in the second shot ;)

    The big one is M51 and is is indeed ripping appart the smaller NGC 5195. If you look half way up in the far right of the pic there is another small sliver. It is a galaxy as well, just further away, but I havn't been able to figure out its designation yet.

    The scope I use is the same as having a 1200mm prime lens, so thats plenty for a lot of the larger, relative to us, galaxies. If I post any more photos like this I will have to include a pic of the scope to give you guys an idea of what is involved.
