Messier 63

M63 or the Sunflower Galaxy.

Another soft image from the 2016 Texas Star Party. The Sunflower Galaxy is about 37 million light years away in the constellation Canes Venatici. This image did manage to go pretty deep and brought out more details and features than many of this object, so for that I'm pretty pleased.
