The Eyes Galaxies, located in the Virgo Cluster, with a distance between 50 – 52 million light years away. NGC 4438 & NGC 4435 are 100,000 light years apart, with an apparent magnitude of 10.

The image was captured using 88 sub-frames at 60 second exposures each. The equipment used, an Explore Scientific ED165 mm F/7 FPL-53 APO Triplet refractor and ZWO ASI2600 CMOS one-shot color camera (OSC), along with a Baader Moon & Sky-Glow filter.

There are multiple galaxies identified in the image, others were to faint to make out.
