M5 - Large Globular Cluster
M5 is one of the largest known Globular Clusters. I pointed the TMB at it while the moon was too large for anything else. This is 20 hours worth of data..... 30x600s in Lum, Red, Green and Blue. You can read all about it here
There's more clusters on the way!!!

Great idea to capture something stunning like this when the moon is not in a "cooperative" mood. Between the light of a full moon and light pollution to my direct north and south, at times I can only look straight up. And when the moon is late in rising, my sky is usually filled with clouds. But then there's always your photographs to look at! Thank you!

Thank you James for your kind words :) There's always a gap in the clouds............ eventually!!

Sara, I forgot to mention in my previous post that I had read your entire page on "My observatory." I found it to be most interesting as well as a learning experience. I also love the lengthy, information-filled explanations you post with your photos. So much more entertaining than a simple one- or two-word caption beneath a photo as one usually finds. Thank you so much. I really enjoy your fabulous photographs.

I have tried to make my site as informative as possible about all aspects of what I do - To that end I have always tried to explain stuff fully and will always help people if they have questions. I'm glad that you enjoyed the 'My Observatory' section :)
