Nice image Andy.

I had a look at M2 last night! Got to love a globular cluster!

Regards

Graeme

That is a very good image of M2. You seem to have got the technique pinned down nicely! Its been a while since I observed that particular cluster myself. Its long overdue! For lovers of globulars, even bigger and brighter is nearby M15 in Pegasus. :geek:
I use an 11" reflector (Celestron CPC 1100) and a 3" refractor, (Sky-Watcher ST80) mounted on an equatorial wedge, housed in a 2.2m Pulsar observatory. I use a ZWO ASI 120MM, ZWO ASI1600MC and Canon 1300D for imaging.
