On this page I collect my observations of the spiral galaxy M 101 (Pinwheel Galaxy) in the constellation Ursa Major.

 

Introduction

The spiral galaxy M 101 (Pinwheel Galaxy) in the constellation Ursa Major is seen face-on, similar to M 99 and M 100, but much larger than both; quite impressive in the eVscope.

Size: 18' x 11' (Stoyan)
Distance: 25 million light years
