The bright Sc spiral galaxy M74 in a pseudocolor V-band image taken with the Lowell 1.1-meter telescope. This is an excellent example of the subtype dubbed Sc(s) in the de Vaucouleurs extension of Hubble's galaxy classification, in which the arms arise in a spiralling pattern from the nuclear region itself rather than from a surrounding ring.

From Bill Keel's image collection at the University of Alabama.
