Notes: This is a reprocessed image of M104 taken on 1/20/08. This time I used wavelet filters in a program called Registax and a few other processing tricks to bring out much more detail in the galaxy core and surrounding area. This is the color version which is an LRsGB image (sG = synthetic green).A lot of processsing work but well worth it.
