    Default Added more data to my Sombrero galaxy



    Ok, like I said last night I captured 2 more hours worth of subs on this galaxy and have added them to it. Having the extra subs allowed me to bring out more of the red in the dust lane and the central bulge of the galaxy. Not totally satisfied with the way the background came out but I guess you take what you get when you shooting these objects. Anyway here is the updated version with the extra subs.

    Updated M104, the Sombrero Galaxy with extra data

    I thought I'd put it on another thread so the link to the new image would be at the top and not the bottom of the other thread

    Also the link in the other thread won't work cause I replace the photo on my flickr page.

    Nice job Scott!

    I will try adding data sometime. Even if I shoot the same targets next year!

    Thanks,

    Nice improvement in detail and color for the galaxy. The background gradients are gone too.
