The Sombrero Galaxy, M104
M104 or NGC 4594, often called the Sombrero galaxy is a remarkably beautiful target and one of my favorites. It is a lenticular galaxy in the constellation Virgo. It has a bright nucleus, an unusually large central bulge, and a prominent dust lane. The data was taken by Garry Sedun and the processing was done by John McDonald
