Galaxies around Leo and Virgo

30 March 2019

This was my first attempt to photograph some of the galaxies between the constellations Leo and Virgo. The image is not quite what I hoped for but nevertheless I got at least some galaxies. The most prominent ones are NGC 4762 and NGC 4754 as well as NGC 4649 also known as M60.

For the next time I have to improve my abilities to find my target without using a goto-mount. Perhaps then I will be able to photograph Markarian's Chain which should roughly be in the same area.
