M74
Messier 74 (M74, NGC 628) is one of the nicest examples of so-called "grand-design" spiral galaxies seen face-on, so that its spiral structure stands out conspicuously. With its comparatively low surface brightness, it is one of the more difficult objects in Messier's catalog. Situated in constellation Pisces the distance is about 30 to 40 million light years and it’s diameter is 1000 light years.
