Description

Markarian's Chain, centered on M86. A long duration stack for me, actually taken over 3 different nights.

Markarian's Chain was very well placed in the sky for getting a lot of data. The blue channel is s bit bloated which I didn't realize until so far along in the processing that I decided I would live with it. But a fun target and more detail than I was expecting.
