M97, the Owl Nebula (Ramsay)
The Owl nebula, NGC3587 or M97 lies approximately 2,030 light years away in the Ursa Major.
Discovered by French astronomer Pierre Méchain in 1781 and later observed by Messier it was included in his catalogue as Messier 97. It measures approx. 3′.4 × 3′.3
On further investigation I discovered that this image also contains a QUASAR J111504.4+550143 which has a magnitude of +19.1 and is 8.2 Billion Light Years away.
