On this page I collect my observations of the elliptical galaxy M 59 in the constellation Virgo.
The elliptical galaxy M 59 in the constellation Virgo is located at a distance of about 0.5° from the galaxy M 60, too far to seen them both in the eVscope.
Size: 1.5' x 1.0' (Stoyan)
Distance: 60 million light years
