Galaxy thread - Post your deep sky images of galaxies

The stars are not too bad, what camera or scope?
It was shot with my old Nikon D7100 and AF-D 300f4 Prime, just stacked frames while supported on my old tripod then processed through an astronomy editer, the worked on again in Lightroom.

Messier 33, taken with the using the Slooh scope and camera process in Pixinsight and LR and Topaz
Spiral galaxy M33 is located in the triangle-shaped constellation Triangulum, earning it the nickname the Triangulum galaxy. About half the size of our Milky Way galaxy, M33 is the third-largest member of our Local Group of galaxies following the Andromeda galaxy (M31) and the Milky Way. Comprised of 54 separate Hubble fields of view, this image is the largest high-resolution mosaic of M33 assembled to date by any observatory. It resolves 25 million individual stars in a 14,000-light-year-wide region spanning the center of the galaxy.

Messier 83, taken with the using the Slooh scope and camera process in Pixinsight and LR and Topaz
Also known as the Southern Pinwheel, this galaxy is located 15 million light-years away from Earth in the constellation Hydra. It was discovered in 1752 by the French astronomer Nicolas Louis de Lacaille. With an apparent magnitude of 7.5, M83 is one of the brightest spiral galaxies in the night sky. It can be observed using a pair of binoculars most easily in May.

Messier 109, taken with the using the Slooh scope and camera process in Pixinsight and LR and Topaz
The brightest member of a group of roughly 80 galaxies known as the Ursa Major Galaxy Cluster, Messier 109 is a barred spiral galaxy that is home to a trillion stars. Observed in 1781 by Charles Messier, the galaxy was officially added to the Messier catalog in 1953. It lies approximately 60 million light-years away in the constellation Ursa Major, and has a magnitude of 9.8, making it one of the faintest Messier objects. Astronomers believe M109’s structure may be influenced by interactions with three satellite galaxies (not shown in this image).

stars are a bit elongated, due to wind
M100 is a stunning example of a grand-design spiral galaxy. This detailed Hubble image reveals individual stars within the galaxy’s prominent spiral arms. These dusty structures swirl around the galaxy’s nucleus and are marked by a flurry of star formation. M100’s characteristic arms also host several small black holes, including the youngest one ever observed in our cosmic neighborhood.

My humble attempt at Pleiades (Seven Sisters) just from my old dslr and telephoto about 20mins of stacked files moving the Seven Sisters-2.JPGcamera tripod during the exposures, then put through a photo stacker and finished off in Lightroom.

I like how you picked up some of the nebulosity! Good job
 
Took this image of The Andromeda Galaxy last night with a guide scope. The Skywatcher 50ED Evoguide w/Starizone field flattener. I have been wanting something a bit wider and smaller for travel.

Only 60 min. of data, processed with ZWO ASI Studio software. Going to use Pixinsite in the near future.

Still testing out the new setup and so far it seems to be doing well.
