Tim Puckett's CCD image of M74 (click to see it in full size). This image was composed from a red, a green, and a blue photo, exposed 5 minutes each, with an Apogee AP-7 CCD camera and 30-cm reflector.
Martin Germano obtained this very good b/w film image of grand-design face-on spiral galaxy M 74. He used his 14.5" f/5 Newtonian, stopped to f/6 (12"). It was exposed 180 minutes on hypered Tech Pan 2415. This is a SprintScan 4000 scan.
