David actually submitted this image back in February but there has been no space for it until now. Taken 2013 February 17 using imaging details which are on the image, David has labelled the major galaxies for us in the area around M 84 and M 86. As David says, the more you look, particularly at full scale, the more you see. And this is with only 1 hour exposure in the light-polluted skies of Outer London. You can also view the image full-size here.
