Markarian's Chain

Well, last night was a bit of a disaster.

Was clear at times, but could not get a straight run.

Anyway, thought I would point my scope to Markarian's Chain as it was rising in the East in Virgo.

So, I took about 60 subs, and at least 20 of them were just orange due to clouds.

I also forgot to take my contrast booster filter off the camera, which probably resulted in loosing some luminance.


Anyway, here is a rough, stacked (35 subs, 20 darks), 20 seconds at ISO 1600 and just a quick processing tweak.


Not sure how many galaxies are in there, but I can see at least 5.
