    No, I didn't get the pic of a black hole, but I did image M87 Wednesday, April 10th. that's where the black hole is. It's to the upper left of the picture, the rest of the galaxies being part of the Markarians Chain in Virgo.

    Approx 150 40 second images using D5500 set at iso800. Imaged through Orion 80mm apo

    Beautiful deep sky image. The galaxies are well defined, and the contrast and sharpness is great. I can see at least three dim galaxies in there.
