Hats off to whoever named the Sombrero Galaxy. 💃🏻 This hat, with an impenetrable SPF, absolutely deserves galactic street-cred.💫 (ps I am actually really excited about the new #sombrerogalaxy pics released & any 90s kid who also dreamed of attending space camp will understand my joy)

Why does the Sombrero Galaxy look like a hat? Reasons include the Sombrero's unusually large and extended central bulge of stars, and dark prominent dust lanes that appear in a disk that we see nearly edge-on. Billions of old stars cause the diffuse glow of the extended central bulge. Close inspection of the bulge in the above photograph shows many points of light that are actually globular clusters. M104's spectacular dustrings harbor many younger and brighter stars, and show intricate details astronomers don't yet fully understand. The very center of the Sombrero glows across the electromagnetic spectrum, and is thought to house a large black hole. Fifty million-year-old light from the Sombrero Galaxy can be seen with a small telescope towards the constellation of Virgo.

The Sombrero Galaxy (also known as NGC 4594) is an unbarred spiral galaxy in the constellation Virgo located 28 million light-years from Earth. The galaxy has a diameter of approximately 50,000 light-years, less than half the size of the Milky Way. It has a bright nucleus, an unusually large central bulge, and a prominent dust lane in its inclined disk. The dark dust lane and the bulge give this galaxy the appearance of a sombrero.

From Space.com: The Sombrero Galaxy, also called M104 or NGC 4594, is about 28 million light-years from our planet in the constellation Virgo. It is so named because the halo surrounding its disc is unusually large, making it look like a sombrero. "Close inspection of the central bulge shows many points of light that are actually globular clusters. M104's spectacular dust rings harbor many younger and brighter stars, and show intricate details astronomers don't yet fully understand," stated the NASA website Astronomy Picture Of The Day in a July 2013 entry. Examination of the galaxy in recent years revealed that it had a sort of "split personality," NASA said on another website, showing that is a large elliptical galaxy that has a disk galaxy embedded inside of it. The reason this happened is still poorly understood.

#Moldiv #space #mars #curiosity #plants #plantsinspace #galaxy #sombrerogalaxy #galactichybrid #milkyway Inspirational, i hope. Yes, we did "grow" plants in space, the Sombrero Galaxy is a hybrid between two kinds of galaxies fused together. Then there is our own galaxy. It is slightly sad that there are so many places to visit in space but no life long enough to see them...unless we do a breakthrough in technology.

hshub : @oscography thanks, your landscapes are really nice.
oscography : @hshub Thanks man, what do you use to image these DSOs?
hshub : @oscography I have a QHY 12 CCD camera with a Hyperstar III lens attached to my 11" Celestron EdgeHd SCT scope.
oscography : Nice, that's some serious equipment! I'm still building my set up at the moment. I plan on using a DSLR lens & a Canon DSLR instead of a scope & CCD. Hopefully I can achieve something half as good as what you've captures 👌
hshub : @oscography That's great. I'm still pretty new with everything and learning. But I've seen images much better than mine with DSLR. As long as you've got some kind of accurate tracking mount you can get great images with DSLR lens.
oscography : Same here, I've been doing it on & off for a year or so. I've gotten some imaging done with another dslr & lens combo on a motorized EQ mount but I'm hoping this combination will get me much better results. You have some great captures though, the hyperstar must give you a crazy large f-ratio! Any advice you can give me in regards to polar alignment? That's where I struggle the most.
hshub : @oscography yea the hyperstar speeds up my scope from F10 to F2 about 25x faster. My mount has a polar scope so I can just find Polaris and put it in the right spot in my scope and it's close enough for me. I use a guide camera piggybacked on my scope so it adjusts for any small errors I make during polar alignment. I would Google your latitude which will save time by getting your latitude pretty close to where you need to be and do your best to line up the North Star through whatever hole or polar scope your mount has. But not sure what you are using.
igarfinkle : Absolutely stunning! Great shot!! 👏🏻

Messier Object 104, o "M104", conosciuta come "Galassia Sombrero". Situata nella costellazione della Vergine, dista da noi 29.000.000 di anni luce. Ciò significa che alla velocità della luce (circa 299.000 km al secondo), impiegheremmo 29 milioni di anni per raggiungerla. Al centro della Galassia Sombrero c'è un buco nero supermassiccio la cui dimensione stimata è quella del nostro sole moltiplicata 1 miliardo di volte. #ScienceFacts #Cosmos #Universe #SombreroGalaxy
universe - cosmos - sombrerogalaxy - sciencefacts -
jarnigab : Che ansia quei "29 millioni di anni per raggiungerla" @24svn
24svn : @jarnigab è comunque nel nostro cortile cosmico
jarnigab : @24svn per carità, ansia lo stesso! Pandorum
24svn : @jarnigab si era per dire che pur essendo "vicina" è sconcertante. Il lontano è davvero lontano.
nicobassano : Mi ha sempre affascinato il poter "viaggiare" alla velocità della luce. La vista esisterebbe? Se sì, cosa saresti in grado di percepire/vedere/comprendere?
24svn : @nicobassano avvicinandosi alla velocità della luce la prima cosa che accadrebbe è il tempo che rallenta. Lo spazio attorno si deforma e si allunga. Superandola o comunque modificandone le caratteristiche si creerebbero dei paradossi spazio-temporali poco raccomandabili.
24svn : @nicobassano i buchi neri per esempio hanno talmente tanta forza di gravità che la luce viene risucchiata. Superato l'orizzonte degli eventi di un buco nero la relatività di Einstein cessa di esistere. Si potrebbe finire in altre epoche / dimensioni. Purtroppo una piuma con tutta quella gravità peserebbe miliardi di tonnellate quindi è impossibile fare qualsiasi stima o esperimento diretto

regram @ocastronomy M104 Hubble Remix The striking spiral galaxy M104 is famous for its nearly edge-on profile featuring a broad ring of obscuring dust. Seen in silhouette against a bright bulge of stars, the swath of cosmic dust lanes lends a hat-like appearance to the galaxy in optical images suggesting the more popular moniker, The Sombrero Galaxy. Here, Hubble Space Telescope archival image data has been reprocessed to create this alternative look at the well-known galaxy. The newly developed processing improves the visibility of details otherwise lost in overwhelming glare, in this case allowing features of the galaxy's dust lanes to be followed well into the bright central region. About 50,000 light-years across and 28 million light-years away, M104 is one of the largest galaxies at the southern edge of the Virgo Galaxy Cluster.
