M104
Constellation - Virgo
Spiral galaxy

SQM 21.63 (LM 6.4)

Telescope 16" f/4.5

Sketch notes
One of my favourites but really hard to sketch. First time I have viewed it with the 16" but have seen it better in my 12" in excellent transparency.
Dark lane was very obvious stretching nearly all the way across, few background stars.
