M3 - Globular Cluster


Recommended Posts


I was hoping to do some colour data for my M106 image but the seeing wasn't really good enough last enough so I thought I would have a go at M3 instead. This was taken with the FSQ106ED at f5 with Starlight Xpress SXVF H9 on a Paramount ME. It is 18x5 minutes per channel for RGB. Just levels, curves and contrast used in the processing. I tried this subject a while ago but had difficulty with the core in the processing, I think this is better, the previous version can be found on the star clusters page in the image gallery of my website Imaging The Heavens - Home Page

The full high resolution image of this can be seen at M3 photo - Gordon Haynes photos at pbase.com

There is still life in the H9 even though it doesn't have set point cooling

Thanks for looking

Best wishes
