The largest and most famous Vortex Galaxy (also known as NGC 5194 and sometimes M51A) is a classic spiral galaxy. It was discovered by Charles Messier on October 13, 1773.

The smaller companion galaxy known as NGC 5195 (or even M51B), is partially covered by a dust arm of the Vortex spiral (with which it interacts) and was discovered by Pierre Méchain in 1781.Shooting data:Camera canon eos 1100d fullspectrum,canon lens 75/300 to 200mm- f 7/1 - iso 1600 - 75x40s -10 dark - optolong filter l-pro eos clip - use of lx2 mini astroinseguitor - acquisition with backyard eos - sum with sequator and photoshop processing
