NGC 5907. A pretty bright
edge-on galaxy in the
constellation Draco.

NGC 3433 is the brightest
face-on galaxy in this picture.
There are at least 5 other galaxies
in this photo, which are fainter
and further away than 3433.

Galaxy Cluster. At least a half dozen galaxies appear in this "galaxy cluster" in the
constellation Hercules

M100. This galaxy is in the
constellation Coma Berenices and is one of many galaxies in
this region of the sky.

M104. The Sombrero Galaxy in
the constellation Virgo. The
central dust lane is visible in large

M51. The Whirlpool Galaxy in
the constellation Canes Venatici.
The spiral form can be seen with
an 8 inch telescope and appears
superb in a 16 inch..

M57 - Ring Nebula in Lyra. An
older star that has blown off its'
outer shell. Notice the small galaxy that Joe highlighted at the 7 o'clock position to M57.

M27 - The Dumbbell Nebula.
Similar to M57, but much larger
and more impressive even in
small telescopes.

Horsehead Nebula - A close-up of the Horsehead Nebula in the
