M53 Globular Cluster


Mark Griffith

Swindon, Wiltshire. UK

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

While waiting for other objects to rise so I had go a at this cluster. Data collected over three nights.

I increased exposure times from 90 seconds to 3 minutes to cope with its fainter magnitude.

Not a bad object as it was high in the sky and has a size of 14 minutes.
