spiral galaxy M106

astrophotographer robert gendler decided to take some of his own images of the spiral galaxy, M106, and combine them with publicly available hubble space telescope images to create this gorgeous cosmological masterpiece:

they also created this video to give an idea of where M106 lives in the night sky.

i'm glad people enjoy making these fantastic views of the cosmos, because i certainly enjoy admiring them.
