I had the opportunity to seek Mrk 205 for the first time with the 24.4inch
Cassegrain at Chateau-Renard but the combination of the F/15 system, a long
focal eyepiece (Lichtenecker 100mm!!! a huge piece of rock) and low power
didn't showed it within the galaxy halo. I also think that even on deep
professional ccd images, the QSO stays away from the halo: only the bridge
or pseudo-bridge -I won't enter the polemics- can be seen...

clear skies, Yann.
