Messier 109 barred galaxy…

We had some clear skies which provided an opportunity to photograph this barred galaxy that is located right next to one of the stars in the big dipper. It was taken through a five inch refractor with thirteen hours of exposures. More data is available at my Astrobin site. http://astrob.in/285044/0/
