Description

This is not a typical "crazy nebula astropic". But for me it is even more, it is kind of astrometric picture of the Markarian's Chain area. No fancy processing, no star-play, but instead a plethora of galaxies, each consisting of billions of stars and probably many planetary systems. Maybe some like our own? It always make me contemplate my place in the Universe when I see that whole complete worlds in a few pixels. Touching.

PS. To help you all lurk through the background I have left the file in the original resolution. There is noise, not all stars are pinpoint, but if that doesn't hurt you, feel free to inspect the vastness of our Universe.
