M13 Globular Cluster


Mark Griffith

Swindon, Wiltshire. UK

Celestron c11 sct, skywatcher NEQ6 pro mount, Atik 383L+ camera, motorised filter wheel and Astronomik LRGB filter set.

Clouds cleared early so had a go at my favourite globular cluster. High in the sky and well placed for imaging.

Nice easy object to image.

Got the focusing spot on with a bartinov mask.

Captured two hours of data before the moon got in the way. Plently of captures to produce a nice image.

LRGB 12 frames with each filter unbinned 90 second exposures. 25 dark, bias and flats. Deep sky Stacker, StarTools & Paintshop Pro X5.
