M3 Globular Cluster

Recommended Posts

Another first for me, my first globular cluster.

I'm pretty pleased with this one, taken from a dark site rather than my city garden. 45 lights and 30 darks.

Don't know if globs are easy or I just got lucky with this one. Always happy to receive constructive criticism of course.

Cheers

congratulations on your 1st glob! a very nice image. the focus looks pretty good as well, but the stars towards the edges of the frame do look slightly elongated.

globs can be a little easier than other DSO's because of there brightness so shorter total exposures are used.
