A Hyperstar III 2-framer of the Markarian Chain/M87 region in the Virgo galaxy cluster.
This is a single frame Hyperstar III image of the M100 region taken in April 2010. Again presented in colour and in B&W so you can see the numerous “faint fuzzies” in the background.
The second of 7 frames of data processed in colour and B&W. This one is centred on M87.
