Description:
Observed after M84 and M86, this pair of galaxies ("The Eyes") shares field 
with them in low power eyepieces. Both are part of the Markarian's Chain. This 
is a close pair of galaxies (distance is 5´); the north component (NGC 4435) 
seems brighter and has a bright core. NGC 4438 is fainter and more diffuse.
