May 5, 2013 I think I had a NELM alamost 6 mag (at my home in small Twon) .. marvelous night! Amazing clarity – good transparency and windless sky, … did an atmosphere very stable,
I’ve seen the spiral arms inside the hallo surrounded the white core of Wirlpool Galaxy.
The hallo was built of black and white swirls, they where quite visible .. definitely I’ve seen a bridge between the M51 and NGC 5195 and a few stars in the background!
I recommend You to observe this object in all apertures, it is always… beautiful!
