Caption

Sombrero galaxy. Optical image of the Sombrero galaxy (M104, NGC 4594). This spiral galaxy lies 50 million light years away in the constellation Virgo. The galaxy is seen almost edge-on. The dark stripe running across it is due to dust lying in the plane of the galaxy. This image was made by the UH8K CCD camera on the Canada-France-Hawaii Telescope on Mauna Kea, Hawaii, USA.
