Saturn

With Jupiter way over to the west, attention is now drawn to Saturn in the east. The problem is that Saturn is currently in the lower part of the ecliptic (Ophiuchus) and is very low down. Saturn isn't the brightest of planets at the best of times, and struggles in the murk when it is low down. On top of that it is skirting along the top of my hedge, so not every part of ...

1st attempt Hercules Cluster M13

Hi all this is my first attempt at hercules cluster as I am fairly pleased with the images as the moon was very bright making it a bit more difficult to get the image,hopefully when the moon is out of the way will try and get some better images.I used deepskystacker I think it captured about 860 stars in the cluster.
Thanks for looking.
