the great globular clusters

Recommended Posts

Heres what i observed last night

Messiers 3,53,13,92,and M5.

All are globulars.

i have recently fixed my 12" dob,and now i can use powers exceeding 300x!!!

M3 was spectacular at 222x,thousands of points in the clusters halo. The core is very concentrated.

M92 had a sparse core, but this clusters stars were very clumped together. M92s halo was glittered with stars.

M13 was larger than M92, but its size makes it explode into stars at the lowest power.

M5 was a ball of rice at 332x,the variable star above the clusters core was the easiest star to see.

the other members shining brightly also. M5 looks oval in my viewpoint.

M13 has some competition with M5
