Messier 13 imaged with my Esprit 100ED and ATIK414ex using Baader RGB filters (30x240s in each channel). I have Bortle class 4 skies here, but I also have neighbours who love two VERY bright halogen lights, a street lamp and of course the Moon was about last night and the night before.

NGC6207 and IC4617 are clearly visable, despite the insane distance involved with IC4617, which is very pleasing, as I've only ever tackled this object with my LX90 8" SCT. I am also enjoying "find the galaxies", and noticed a small cluster of them mid right, not looked them up yet, but always a thrill to capture more than you bargained for.
