04-23-2019. M104, The Sombrero Galaxy, is now up in the eastern sky near the bright star Spica.
The Sombrero Galaxy is in the constellation Virgo found 31,100,000 light years from Earth. It has a bright nucleus, an unusually large central bulge, and a prominent dust lane in its inclined disk. The dark dust lane and the bulge give this galaxy the appearance of a sombrero hat.
The image was captured by my SkyWatcher SW120 ED refractor with an Orion .85X focal reducer. The camera is my Nikon D3100. 40, 60sec images were captured and stacked in DeepSkyStacker (DSS) and then enhanced in GIMP.
