This is Messier object 101, often called the Pinwheel Galaxy. It's in the Ursa Major Constellation (think Big Dipper), about 21 million light years away, and about 85,000 light years across with a trillion or so stars.

If this looks familiar...

I posted my previous effort shooting M101 a few posts above. For some time I've been taking my astro photos with a DSLR and while I've been pretty pleased with some of the results, I wanted to up my game. I ordered a new monochrome camera. Sound like a step back but all the cool astrophotography nerds use them. I spare the explanations but bottom line is I'm able to get better results than with a DSLR for several reasons. Message me if you want to know more about how it all works. This was the first shooting session with the new gear.

This image only has about 90 minutes of exposure time compared to 3.5 hours for the one from last month above. You probably won't notice a difference on your phone but it's significant on a decent monitor. I hope to get another session to shoot this one. 3 or 4 hours more and I should have a very decent image.

Papaw's little sweetheart grand daughter Callie Ann Kathleen, five years old. Taken day before yesterday at her one year old brother's birthday party.
Boys, be warned. She is tough as nails and will be a heartbreaker one day.

Six of our fourteen grandkids. From left, Ryan James McDonald (3), Conner Lee Dover (9), Carson Edward Lee McDonald (1), holding him is his brother Landon Adam Lebron McDonald (7), Callie Ann Kathleen McDonald (5), and Isabella Grace McDonald (2). Taken 4/28 with my phone at a Family Dinner. Ryan and Bella are siblings. Landon, Callie, and Carson are siblings. Conner is the brother of the grandson Lucas we lost nine years ago (pic is my avatar). He and Lucas shared the same birthday, three years apart.

Cade's Cove isn't far from me (Chattanooga). You live around here?
