This was my firsth observation of the famous Sombrero Galaxy. While using 25mm Plossl it looked like thin stripe of light with small central bulge. When I swiched on higher magnification galaxy showed her unique shape. Central bulge was visible with parts of the spiral arms, but I didn't spot dark lane.
