On this page I collect my observations of the spiral galaxy NGC 4216 in the constellation Virgo, which is accompanied by the spiral galaxies NGC 4206 and NGC 4222 (Coma Berenices).

The spiral galaxy NGC 4216 in the constellation Virgo appears in an oblique position; the two companion galaxies NGC 4206 and NGC 4222 (Coma Berenices)are smaller. Fruther galaxies can be made visible on the photo, particularly if it is made brighter.
