El cúmulo globular M9 (también conocido como Objeto Messier 9, Messier 9, M9 o NGC 6333) es un cúmulo globular de la constelación de Ofiuco. Fue descubierto por Charles Messier en 1764. Su magnitud conjunta en banda B (filtro azul) es igual a la 9.36, su magnitud en banda V (filtro verde) es igual a la 8.42; su tipo espectral es Ne. Fotográficamente se aprecia de color amarillento debido a la gran cantidad de estrellas gigantes rojas (de color amarillento o dorado) que contiene.
M65 is a big, beautiful spiral galaxy, the sixty-fifth object in the famous astronomical catalog compiled by 18th century cosmic tourist Charles Messier. It's also a member of a picturesque trio of large spiral galaxies known as the Leo Triplet, about 35 million light-years away. This sharp view of M65 shows off the galaxy in remarkable detail, with tightly wound spiral arms and dust lanes stretching into a core dominated by the yellowish light from an older population of stars.
Spiral galaxy NGC 1097is located about 45 million light-years from Earth appearing in thesouthern hemisphere constellation Fornax. A Seyfert galaxy, the nucleus of NGC 1097 harbors a supermassive black hole.
One-Armed Spiral Galaxy NGC 4725 Image Data: Subaru Telescope (NAOJ), Hubble Space Telescope, Additional Color data: Adam Block, Bob Franke, Maurice Toet - Assembly and Processing: Robert Gendler While most spiral galaxies, including our own Milky Way, have two or more spiral arms, NGC 4725 has only one. In this sharp color composite image, the solo spira mirabilis seems to wind from a prominent ring of bluish, newborn star clusters and red tinted star forming regions.

At the top right, large spiral galaxy NGC 1055 joins spiral Messier 77 in this sharp cosmic view toward the aquatic constellation Cetus. The narrowed, dusty appearance of edge-on spiral NGC 1055 contrasts nicely with the face-on view of M77's bright nucleus and spiral arms. Both over 100,000 light-years across, the pair are dominant members of a small galaxy group about 60 million light-years…
Distant and peculiar galaxy 2MASX J05210136-2521450 has a very bright nucleus and an unusual outer structure of a one-sided extension of the inner arms, with a tidal tail streaming in the opposite direction. All are signs that it is the product of a galactic merger.
