Messier 95 (M 95)

Introduction | Map | My Best Own Photos | My Own Observations | References || Appendix: My Own Photos

On this page I collect my observations of the barred spiral galaxie M 95 in the constellation Leo.

 

Introduction

The galaxy M 95 in the constellation Leo is part of a galaxy quartet (the M 96 group). All these galaxies are, however, difficult to find in light-polluted skies, as I also had to find out.

M 95 is a s mall barred spiral galaxy, relatively faint, but the bar is visible. It forms a pair with M 96, but both are too far away for the eVscope (40') to be seen together.

Size: 3.5 x 3 (Stoyan)
Distance: 40 million light years
Rating: * (Stoyan)
