M 104 The Sombrero Galaxy LRGB One-Clicks

I can't get this "up close and personal" with my NP127is, so thanks to the CHI-1 light bucket.....I can finally try to do justice to this beautiful galaxy. This is an LRGB processing of 74 subs varying from 300 to 600 seconds of One-Click Observations from February-August 2021.
The Sombrero Galaxy lies at a distance of 28,000,000 light-years with a mass of around 800 billion suns. It has very nice dust lanes that comprise the spiral structure but, to me, one of the most interesting things is, what look like stars encircling the galaxy are actually globular clusters encircling the galaxy.
I'm not that good at processing galaxies but, as usual.
Hope ya like it!
Tom
