Hi everyone, here is a quick shot of M104, the Sombrero Galaxy, which I took the other day. This is a crop of the galaxy itself, resized to about 80%.
I wanted some more data for this but I have since had to take a break while installing a larger secondary mirror. So in the meantime I decided to process the data I've got so far...

I think it turned out quite well. The limiting magnitude is definitely deeper than what I could reach with the ToUCam; a lot of M104's globular clusters are easily visible in the image and they are around magnitude 21.
