M104 Sombrero Galaxy
This is one strange looking, mostly edge on galaxy. The central core is thought to be a very massive and energetic black hole. Distance around 50 million light years. I imaged this one at the South Pacific Star Party, Ilford NSW Australia in March 2008. Celestron GPS11, EQ Wedge, f3.3, Meade DSIc camera. Processed in Photoshop.
