NGC 4676A, NGC 4676B - 14.4.2016 at 00.30 Kauhava Observation number 51734

Visibility II / V

Jari Kankaanpää, Lakeuden Ursa

"Mice jump in Berenike's hair."

I decided to try to make the tails of the galaxies visible, even though the sky is already pale and these objects are really dim and distant. Distance 300 million light-years.
