The Sombrero Galaxy

M104, the Sombrero Galaxy. Taken in May of 2008, revamped in May of 2018. 7×300 @ ISO 800, Canon XT, TV-85 at F/5.6

One of my favorite galaxies.   I like all edge-on galaxies and this one has a uniqueness to it that makes it special.   The original had a splotchy background and the color was muted and dull.   I increased saturation and shifted the color balance to be more bluish.  I used the add noise PS filters to get the background to look smoother.
