M51 - The Whirlpool Galaxy

The SDSS website doesn't recognise this as an object, hence the lack of an SDSS reference number (if you don't believe me, you can check by selecting the 'bounding boxes' on the link below). However, it is such a nice galaxy that I think it definitely needs to be included here. You can also see it's companion galaxy NGC 5195 very nicely here as well. Sorry for the slight artifact.
