Located in the constellation Bootes, approximately 52000 light years from Earth, lies the globular cluster NGC 5466. It is designated as a class XII cluster, meaning that it has relatively non-concentrated stars towards the core compared to a class I cluster.  This last fact starting me wondering if my scope would be able to resolve the "gaps" in the central core...... note also the various background galaxies. 

The LRGB image below was taken with my Esprit 150 and represents just over 9 hours integration time.
