Voyager,

An excellent observation of M104 in Virgo. This is an impressive edge on galaxy that looks impressive in a large aperture instrument. Thank you for sharing it with us all.

I took the liberty to blur the galaxy (Gaussian) then place the drawing upon a dark grey background. I hope that you like it.

Carlos

You nailed the Sombrero affect here and I love your dust lane up front. Very realistic to the view through an eyepiece. Well done.

Whats challenging from a semi suburban sky isnt seeing the galaxy but making out the dustlane which under those lousy skys just doesnt show through my 8".

Your observing is really good to get that detail in an urban sky. Nice catch.
