Galaxies NGC 5850 (Barred Spiral) and NGC 5846 (Eliptical) in Virgo. Captured in LRGB. There is a fascinating contrast between the structure and color of the spiral galaxy compared to the fuzzy mass of the eliptical.

Images were taken as a time filler while working on other projects. I don't really have the aperture or seeing to do them real justice.
