M83 (N5236)

 M83, the brightest 'face-on' galaxy in the southern sky, it seems - at least for large spirals. Separating the 'arms' from the general round glow isn't so easy - and is very 'seeing' dependent. This was a good May night in 2015 - despite the gusts. Star mags. shown in case you spot a SN!
