Markarian's Chain

02 May 2021

This is an image of Markarian's Chain which is located between the constellations of Leo and Virgo. It took me the better part of an hour to find and frame this object and the result is not as impressive as I was hoping it would be.

Anyway, this will be a target next galaxy season which might be worth reshooting - but then perhaps with a better f-ratio than f/8. And hopefully with a goto-mount.
