Another beautiful picture from APOD - Starburst Galaxy M94

Marcin Paciorek gave me permission to post his picture of the Starburst Galaxy M94:


















This is a relatively small galaxy of 30,000 light-years across. By comparison, our Galaxy is 180,000 light-years across.

Wow, how beautiful!

My kids began a class for homeschoolers on astronomy last night, taught by a HS dad enthusiast. I am going to see how I can use my DSLR to take photos with his telescope. Another autodidact project for ME.
