Description

4 Panel Mosaic of a LOT of galaxies in and around Markarian's Chain. Doing a plate solve in PixInsight it found 2021 PGC galaxies. Here I marked this up showing the 12 Messier objects in the field of view. I will be adding the full size version as a revision. (I had to save it fairly compressed to get the filesize down). It is a little noisy but it was a fun target to shoot.

Software used to capture image:
Sequence Generator Pro
PHD2

Description: Okay so the 206MP full size doesn't seem to want to open. So here is a version downsized to 10000 on the long side. Hopefully that works!
