M84, M86, M87, M88, M89 and M90 - 26.1.2022 at 00.50 - 26.1.2022 at 01.57 Sulkava Observation number 104587

Visibility I / V

Kari Teittinen, Keski-Uudenmaan Altair

A large number of galaxies are obtained in the same picture. The image of the Markarian chain includes M84, M86, M87, M88, M89, and M90, as well as a large number of other, smaller galaxies. You can get an interesting picture of the area with even a short focal length. Hopefully one day I will be able to shoot the same area over a longer focal length.

The moon sniffs already above the horizon. Fortunately, the target area is high, the effect of the moon will remain small. For a month.
