On this page I collect my observations of the barred spiral galaxy M 58 in the constellation Virgo.

 

Introduction

According to Karkoschka, the bar of the barred spiral galaxy M 58 in the constellation Virgo should be just about visible in the telescope. In the eVscope I found the bar hard to recognize.

Size: 5.5' x 4.5' (SkySafari), 2,5 x 1,5' (Stoyan), 5' (Karkoschka)
Distance: 60/65 million light years (Stoyan/Karkoschka)
Rating: * (Stoyan)
