Visibility III / V
I tried shooting the Virgo cluster area with a 200mm lens. While the camera was working, it was fun to look for brighter Messier targets with giant binoculars. For example, the globular star cluster M12 in the Serpentine Carrier was detected for the first time. The galaxy M87, whose black hole image was just released, also stood out clearly.
The main image of the observation covers about 7.5 x 6 degrees of the sky and is a panorama of two images. I made the image a black and white negative type, because I think the galaxies stand out better. Most of the galaxies visible in the image are in the area bounded by the galaxies mentioned in the title. The second image is an enlargement of the first image from the region of the Markarian Chain and M87.
