My first entry to the 30s challenge.

M104 Sombrero Galaxy.

76x30s for 38 minutes with 30 dark, 20 flat and 50 bias frames. Stacked in DSS, processed in StarTools, finished with PS express.

Modified Canon 1200d with CLS filter, SW Star Discovery 150p on an EQ3 Pro mount.

I have been waiting for clear sky's for 6 weeks and almost forgot how to image and process :) 

edit. ISO 1600 - Date taken 14/05/2017

Cheers

Nige.

Great image. It has a simplicity about it which I love - different from some other images, which really pop out at you. The subtle beauty reminds us how small we are. Fantastic entry.
