This is one of the objects which data I’m going through which I captured during the last couple of months.
This is an image of M104 which I captured across a few nights starting end of March and a couple of nights in April.
This was imaged at 2032mm, the 8” SCT native focal length, 300s, 600s and 900s ISO800 subs.
This didn’t come out as well as I hoped it would, no details in the edge shadow, but during those nights I was fighting slight haze… this is an object which I’ll have to image again in the future.
3 objects left to process.
Took this M104 aka the Sombrero Galaxy during my lest year visit to Namibia (April 2017).
M104 is quite a small object for an F3.6 telescope but since it is very difficult to photo this object from my country I decided to take some photos. Hope you like it
