Messier object 104, the Sombrero Galaxy is in the Southern part of the sky near Corvus. I took advantage of a nice night with clear skies to the south to capture this shot.
17 x 4 = 68 minutes exposure the nights of March 7/8 at the HAS site near Columbus. Canon EOS 20Da (unmodified), Takahashi TOA 130 (a 5" APO refractor) with Tak flattener, and Astro-Physics AP 900GTO mount. My current image processing workflow is here.
