M104 Image Close-Up


This M104 (Sombrero Galaxy) shot was taken on the second night out with the SAC8. I am delighted to get a picture of M104, and it even resembles the pictures of M104 in the book!!! Cool.... I have never been able to even detect M104 from my driveway. M104 is too dim and my street is too bright. This was taken at prime focus with the Nexstar 8GPS using a Celestron .6 focal reducer.


This second shot of M104, the Sombrero Galaxy was shot on March 26, 2004 with the Nexstar 11 GPS. I like its appearance more, but I think the first shot, given my absolute inexperience, was the more impressive shot.
