Markarian Galaxy Chain M84 and M86 A curving "chain" of galaxies closely grouped. They may have no physical connection with each other. Markarian Galaxy chain

Markarian Galaxy chain

The more prominent galaxies are labeled in this image.

Markarian's Chain is in the central region of the Virgo Galaxy Cluster centered around M84 and M86. Only a portion of the chain is shown here on this Meade 8-in f/4 LXD75 image with a Canon 20Da camera.
