    Default M104



    Hi!

    Here's my first ever image of m104, the infamous sombrero galaxy. I was inspired by the Hubble image of this same galaxy.

    LRGB, asi 1600 mm-c, 480 mm triplet ( cropped image)

    Please enjoy!

    Hi Adam. A beautiful Sombrero Galaxy capture from you here. Excellent contrast, lots of sparkly stars, and wonderful detail in the galaxy. Thanks for sharing this with us Adam, and keep up this great work.
