NGC4411A, NGC4411B and Abell 1541 in Virgo. A stack of 80 one minute exposures using a Vixen R200SS 8" f/4 Newtonian with a coma corrector. This image was calibrated, defect-corrected and stacked, and then a gradient correction was performed, and then 10 iterations of a Richardson Lucy deconvolution were applied, all using AIP4WIN. This image has been resampled down from its original size of 1288x968.
