OOoo! Stunning! Dave, how about a link to a full resolution image? I found this one on Mr. Beer's website: www.starhopper.at/m51.htm Gorgeous!
Be sure to visit the site below & click on the image to see the high resolution image of the galaxy. Thanks willbidrco. It looks like a Hubble image. Those dinosaurs have been gone for a long time- 55 million years? Space junk got them.
