Description

Apparently over 2000 galaxies are within the Virgo cluster - 10 subs x 120 secs using ED102 FCD100, ASI294MC Pro, gain 300, cooled to -15 degrees.

- IC3322A is the galaxy to the right of IC789

- NGC4366 is the galaxy center below?? or is unknown?? - does not show up on Worldwidetelescope.org, nova.astrometry.net or here in platesolve.

A bit of star trail as not spot on with polar alignment to Sigma Octantis.

The distance of the galaxies in the image measured in light years is 60 million which is roughly the equivalent of 567,643,828,000,000,000,000 ie 567.643828 sextillion kilometres from earth.
