The Virgo/Coma galaxy cluster featuring Markarian’s Chain

A slightly more careful processing of the earlier data.  At least 4 asteroids in there and North is to the right 🙂

The Virgo/Coma galaxy cluster including Markarian’s Chain

I found a couple more frames lurking in the archive, as well as realising that I’d lost a few with M89, M90, M91 🙁  I will have to retake those again.  This massive field of view is precisely what I … Continue reading
