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.
Andy

The moon is not a friend to the deep sky observer, unless it stays away!

You could get a little more detail by making it even brighter, but you have to watch you don't over do the bright core stars. M13 is very distictive with the 'cross' of stars in the centre and the 'arms' of bright stars radiating out.

Hi Aratus thanks for your comments,I have increased the brightness as much as I can without showing the noise on the chip.
Thanks
