Description

Hi friends,

the wether wasn't very good in Germany in the last weeks. So there was only a little time gap to get some pics.

This is the Markarians Chain in Virgo. I love all these galaxies. This picture needs a lot more exposer time. I'll try to add more pics when possible.

I hope you like it.
