--Scenic spots in spring sky
251 images displayed, Last updated on Dec 4, 2020

We can appreciate no flows of the Milky Way in spring skies. And few celestial objects are scattered suitable for compact binoculars.
  But there are uncountable far and far galaxies beyond our home Galaxy because spring skies include no inner-galactic gaseous matter obstructing dimmed galaxies. Although it might be needed telescopes to enjoy seeing them, a season of spring is most suitable for observing various figures of galaxy's individualities.

I've added "SPLENDID !" marks in especially magnificent objects. Check those without forgetting !
And you can choose other 4 ways for browsing. Please use your favorite one as the need arises.
     .....Objects with this mark include pages of spectral profiles taken with a spectrometer.

Galaxies in Spring Part 1 (Northern Area)
To Preview of Galaxies(Part 1)
  Almost all of scenic spots in spring skies are outer galaxies. So I've listed them by grouping into two sections of northern and southern areas.
  Many galaxies scattered in northern skies are floating about 10 to 20 millions light years away, comparatively close to us. It's one of characteristics that you can enjoy them only with small-sized telescopes. Some of them have unique shapes and various nicknames like Pinwheel Nebula (M101) and Whirlpool Galaxy (M51) around the Big Dipper, Black-eye Galaxy (M64) in Coma Berenices, and so on.

Galaxies in Spring Part 2 (Southern Area)
To Preview of Galaxies(Part 2)
  This section shows you galaxies distributed in the southern skies in spring. The Virgo Cluster, that extends over Virgo and Coma Berenices and contains some thousands of galaxies, is the closest galactic cluster to us. And you can enjoy some other bright galaxies of M65 & M66 in Leo on the west side of Virgo Cluster, the Sombrero Galaxy (M104) in southern part of Virgo, and so on.

Inner-Galactic Objects in Spring
To Preview of Inner-Galactic Objects
  These pictures have been captured Nebulae and Star Clusters in our Galaxy. The spring skies hardly include inter-stellar gaseous matters because the field is far from the Milky Way, so you cannot at all appreciate diffused and/or dark nebulae.
  You can see some of planetary nebulae formed by dead stars, globular clusters distributed in the Halo region of the Galaxy, and some huge and near open clusters like the Praesepe (M44) in Cancer and Mel.111 in Coma Berenices.
