MUSCA Globular Cluster - NGC4833

Sign in to follow this  

This is my next installment to continue with my goal to image southern objects.

NGC 4833 is a globular cluster situated in the very southerly constellation "Musca" the fly and lies at a distance of 21,200 light years from Earth.

It is partially obscured by a dusty region of the galactic plane which gave it a yellow/orange hue before color correction.

After color correcting the reddening caused by the dust, the other star colors became a bit more obvious.

This image was taken with a stock Canon 40D DSLR through a 8" Schmidt Cassegrain telescope at 2032mm focal length.

It consists of around 120 minutes of 60, 120 and 180 second subs at ISO400.
