The Cat's Eye Galaxy aka Croc' Eye (猫目銀河) Messier 94

Since I photographed the Cat's Eye Nebula, I also photographed the core and disk of the Cat's Eye Galaxy (Crocodile's Eye).
Hmm. I wonder if it's the blue eyes of a Siamese cat. This don't look like cat eyes. I think the crocodile's eyes are more accurate.
In the future, I'd like to film and edit more carefully to bring out the delicate Dark Lane in the core, the wavy disc part, and the peripheral Halo part that spreads out a bit.
Perhaps we have entered the rainy season, the sky is already damp and this image also looks damp. I guess this season is almost over.
