M109 - Barred Spiral Galaxy

Taken by: Bob Finnigan and Lee Green
Date: 4/30/2011
Exposure: 60-15-15-15 minute LRGB exposure

We were nearly despairing of the lousy weather in April until the last night of the month when a short opening occured overnight. We wanted to get a good shot of M109, the beautiful barred-spiral galaxy in Ursa Major, and this one will have to do for now.
