Sombrero Galaxy – March 28, 2017

One image of a superb edge-on galaxy: Messier 104, or better known as the Sombrero-hat galaxy” (“Sombrero” for short).

This image was exquisitely hard to acquire and process due to the low altitude of the object, lots of light pollution, bad seeing, and some wind. The image was acquired with the 355mm F/4.5 Newtonian, Baader MPCC, ASI 1600MM with no filters. 1500 frames, each a 3 seconds exposure.
