Pinwheel Galaxy and Super Nova SN 2023i

Pinwheel Galaxy and Super Nova SN 2023i

Description: The Pinwheel galaxy, also known as M101 (or NGC5457) is face on spiral galaxy which is 21 million light years away. Located in the constellation of Ursa Major, this galaxy has gained recent popularity as one can see the newly formed Super Nova (SN 2023ixf). This Super Nova became visible on May 19th and is considered the closest Super Nova to earth in over a decade. The RGB image was captured in my backyard over two nights (May 26th and May 28th). It contains 6 hours of exposure time using 180 second subs in luminance, red, green and blue.
