Here is my attempt at Markarian's Chain. It had been a month since I got to image. I wanted to drive out to a dark sky site to image. However, clouds to the North and South ruled that out. I was lucky that they stayed away till almost midnight. These faint fuzzies demand more time and darker sky's than I gave them I believe.

Thanks for looking.

nice image. I recently imaged it too. Amazing how many galaxies there are in the frame.

Thanks all.

Toxic, Make me want to take my AT65 out and go wider or maybe just my 200mm lens. Only concern with the lens is the galaxies may be to small.
