    Default M58 question



    Was viewing m58 tonight and I noticed nw of the core still inside the bands there seemed to be another much smaller "core" for lack of better words. Is there a supernova in m58 in that vicinity?

    As dark as your sky is, I'd say you are picking up the knot of an HII region (illuminated nebulosity) on one of the spiral arms.

    Supernovae appear as little dim "stars" with the host galaxy. If one were present within this galaxy, there would be some forum traffic on it.

    Do a Google image search on Messier 58 and you should see the additional "core", the knot, in several images.

    Ah okay! Well shocked I could see that with how moon washed my skies were. I couldnt see it in the 39mm but when I zoomed in with the 9mm that's when it popped. Was really really nice.

    Mike, I think you might really enjoy Stephen James O'Meara's book, The Messier Objects I recommend a used copy of the first edition.
