13 Messier objects in one image

Last night I managed to get the second frame of a Canon 200mm/M26C Trius 2-frame mosaic.

I covered the major galaxy region between Denebola and Vindemiatrix – home to the Virgo/Coma galaxy cluster.

In this image there are 13 Messier objects – all of them are galaxies.

Given any more clear skies I will try to get some more data on both frames just to reduce the noise a little more.

On the left hand frame just about every sub had multiple satellite trails – thank goodness for dither and SDMask stacking.
