On this page I collect my observations of the spiral galaxy M 100 in the constellation Coma Berenices.

 

Introduction

The spiral galaxy M 100 in the constellation Coma Berenices is almost seen face-on, similar to M 99 and M 101, but much smaller than M 101.

On an eVscope photo, I discovered the following galaxies: NGC 4328, NGC 4322, NGC 4312, UGC 7425?, IC 783.

Size: 3' (Stoyan)
Distance: 60 million light years
