Object name: M094
M94 is a starburst galaxy in Canes Venatici about 15 million light-years distant. Its core had a major starburst about 10 million years ago which turned the center into a flocculent spiral. Outside of that is a disk region of older stars with hints of a few new stars in thin lines. Unfortunately, my color data was weak due to fog, especially in blue so I didn't pick this up well. Coming off this is a faint somewhat blue (too blue in my image due to underexposure and my attempt to correct for the fog) spiral that looks rather ring-like but really is a spiral that unfortunately I cut off at the south end. The arm continues south out of the image for a bit. It also goes north but I didn't pick that up due to underexposure. This was taken back when I was first going digital and my technique was poor. I do need to revisit this one with a lot more time on a night of better transparency.
