Galaxy'-s Galore in Markarian'-s Chain

Markarian's Chain is an amazing chain of Galaxy's on the tail end of Leo. It took me some time to find its position but eventually got there and managed to take this image on a dark clear night. Picture was taken with 48 shots at an ISO of 800 with 30 dark's and flats applied to the final image. Stacked in deep sky stacker and finished in Photoshop. This picture was unguided which works quite well for short subs of a minute or more so long as you are polar aligned.
