Here is an on-going mosaic of the Virgo-Coma region of galaxies with Markarian's Chain in the middle. I need to get the 3 frames off to the left, plus another 3-frames including M59 and M60 and then I'll finally be done :D :D

Nice one Greg. Looking forward to the complete mosaic. It's an amazing part of the sky as I've just discovered. I'm trying for M81/M82 tonight.

Bob.

Thanks Bob :D Good luck with M81/M82 - although it looks relatively clear lately it's been thin high (almost invisible) cloud which doesn't do the imaging any good at all - shame as there's not been any Moon about either :cry:
See how deep you can go to see if you can pick up any of the IFN that fills the region.

Hi Greg,

The M81/M82 image is posted here.

Virtually nothing that deep. There were hints and there's a bit of blue in the final image. Not an artefact of processing except, I think, that the colour can't be right! :?

Bob.
