NGC 4216 and friends – galaxy composite image

Previously I shared the image I took of NGC 4216 and friends here. I absolutely love this field of view in the constellation of Virgo with it’s many galaxies. You can endlessly look at this image and keep discovering new ‘faint fuzzies’ in there.
I decided to create a composite image consisting of the most obvious galaxies in this image.
The image ended up with over 100 galaxies, and still more can be seen in the original image of NGC 416 and friends.
I think this is quite a nice way of representing all that is there in the image, see for yourself:

Please let me know what you think of it!
