Messier 82

Sometimes called the 'Cigar'Galaxy, M82 is a star burst galaxy with a good deal of turmoil in the inner core. You can see it as red flames of hydrogen. This image is 2 hours of total exposure on the night of March 14, 2010 using the Hyperion telescope, an SBIG11000m camera and acquired using CCD AutoPilot.
