Unistellar eVscope - Specialties Gallery Part 2

Photos by "Topic" | Galaxies with Companions and More, Sorted Alphabetically by Deep Sky Object | Links

On this page as well, I present special DSO taken with my Unistellar eVscope. Here, the focus is on galaxies. The list is redundant with other galleries, but here I point to objects that are in one or the other respect "special." I present galaxies that are "special", have "special guests" in the field of view, or are several galaxies (and sometimes other objects) that can be observed together in the field of view of the eVscope. I also add short explanations...

I present other objects on page Unistellar eVscope - Specialty Gallery Part 1.

Note: See page Overview of the eVscope Pages for just that!

M 61 - Mar 24, 2020, processed, SN 2020jfo marked with arrow

I looked for the galaxy M 61 in constellation Virgo for a second time, because I wanted to find the supernova 2020jfo (Unistellar task). It was discovered on May 6, 2020 and can/could be observed for a short period of time.

M 85 with Supernova 2020nlb (Coma Berenices) and NGC 4394

M 85 - Jul 18, 2020, arrow points to 2020nlb

The elliptical galaxy M 85 in constellation Coma Berenices can be observed together with the small spiral galaxy NGC 4394 in the eVscope. The supernova 2020nlb was discovered on June 25, 2020 and is therefore not visible on the photos from April and May 2020. On the photos from July 2020 it is included (see arrows).

NGC 4636 with Supernova 2020ue (Virgo)

    

NGC 4636 with supernova 2020ue - Feb 8, 2020

 

NGC 4636 with supernova 2020ue - Feb 8, 2020, processed

I looked for the galaxy NGC 4636 in constellation Virgo only, because I wanted to find the supernova 2020ue (Unistellar task). It was discovered in January 2020. I cannot present "Before" photos because I received the eVscope only at the end of January 2020.

The Andromeda Galaxy M 31 is the closest milky way in the universe and contains two other small galaxies M 32 and M 110; M 110 does not fit into the field of view of the eVscope.

M 33 - Sep 18, 2020, processed

The Triangulum Galaxy M 33 in constellation Triangulum is the third largest galaxy in the "local group," which also contains our Milky Way and the Andromeda Galaxy M 31. It includes a number of HII regions, which correspond to galactic emission nebulae. The brightest of these is NGC 604 that I discovered on an eVscope photo in February 2020.

M 81 (Bode Galaxy; Ursa Major) and M 82 (Cigar Galaxy; Ursa Major)

M 82 - Feb 19, 2020, processed

 

M 82 - Mar 17, 2020, processed

 

M 82 - Mar 25, 2020, processed

M 81 (Bode Galaxy) is the main galaxy of a galaxy group in Ursa Major / Great Bear, which also includes the M 82 galaxy (Cigar Galaxy). Only in a small telescope, the two can be observed together, because the viewing angle should be at least 1.5° (I was able to observe both at once in 2019). M 81 is a spiral galaxy, which is seen from above, whereas M 82 is an irregular galaxy, which is seen edge-on.

M 101 (Pinwheel Galaxy; Ursa Major)

   

M 101 - Aug 19, 2020, processed

 

M 101 - Sep 8, 2020, processed

 

M 101 - Sep 8, 2020, processed

The spiral galaxy M 101 (Pinwheel Galaxy) in the constellation Ursa Major is seen face-on, similar to M 99 and M 100, but much larger than both; quite impressive in the eVscope.

Map (SkySafari) showing M 40 and the galaxies NGC 4284, NGC 4290, and PGC 39934

 

 

It remains a mystery to many people, why Charles Messier included a double star as M 40 in his catalogue . When I looked closer at my photo of M 40, I noticed two small galaxies in the field of view, maybe even a third one (NGC 4284, NGC 4290, and maybe PGC 39934)...
