Beautiful pic. I was able to spot nearly all of the ones you have on your pic with a 4-inch reflector.

Great pic. I was amazed at how many galaxies are actually in the picture when I looked at it full size.

Thanks for the post and great pic Gerhard. I received my new ES 24 yesterday and broke it in on Marcarian's chain last night. Nice EP and great group of galaxies to star hop!

Very well done. I was a little surprised to back and look and realize you did this with a 4", albeit with almost 3 hours of exposure.

I always admire the patience of astrophotographers. It is why I am pretty much a straight visual observer.
