Messier 100

Messier 100 is a grand design intermediate spiral galaxy located within the southern part of constellation Coma Berenices.

I had captured the galaxy as part of a few Markarian’s Chain photos from last year, but this was the first time I brought the big telescope out to capture this beauty.
