A galaxy far, far away..

"TOP-HAT GALAXY Over its lifetime, NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope has captured many stunning images. Among the most memorable is this edge-on mosaic of the Sombrero galaxy. With its relatively high brightness magnitude and at a distance of 28 million light-years from Earth, Messier 104, as Sombrero is more formally known, is easily viewed through a small telescope.

Okay...WE have a small telescope. Someone want to point me to where the heck I would find this in the sky?? WOW.
