Another Méchain discovery from 1781, this galaxy was noted by Messier but not included in his catalogue until 1921. An old friend of mine once asked, is it one of them sombrero galaxies? So what do we reckon? Is it?

With the haze adding to the glow from the sodium vapour lamps looking south earlier today...

700d + pn208    23 x 240s @ ISO800
And another attempt at drizzle. I wonder...
