Nothing fancy, just M3

Postby theyppmc » Sat Apr 09, 2011 5:16 pm

Got out for a while last night, but those fainter fuzzies were not available to me because of varying amounts of orange haze, all i managed was Globular cluster M3 that was worth processing, the rest of my captures went in my recycle bin,
LOL.

This shot taken with my 6" f/8 refractor and Atik mono CCD.

I love globulars - they are so photogenic! Just imagine the night sky if we were living on a planet in a globular! Nice image.[:)]

Yes, Mike - it's one of the classics - not long since I read it - brilliant story!
