Messier 96 (M 96)

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

On this page I collect my observations of the spiral galaxy M 96 in the constellation Leo.

 

Introduction

The galaxy M 96 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 96 is a spiral galaxy, which forms a pair with M 95, but both are too far away (40') to be seen together in the eVscope.

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