Object name: M104
M104 is commonly known as the Sombrero Galaxy. This galaxy is way too far south for me to image well. Unfortunately, the weather cleared suddenly before the scope had time to cool I started the image. I had to catch it before it went into my Meridian Tree as when it would come out 90 minutes later it would be partly behind the observatory wall. Tube currents from not letting the scope cool for an hour resulted in flat bottomed stars. Also, due to the time constraint of the Meridian Tree, I was limited to only 40 minutes of luminance data which limited how much of its outer halo I could pick up. I've processed it both to show the galaxy normally and then again with a strong stretch to bring out as much of the large halo as possible with my limited exposure time.
