MAPOW 01Here one of my very first experiments with digital astrophotograpy: M13 the Great Globular Cluster in Hercules.

It is one of the finest globular clusters in northern sky and a very easy target even from my light polluted sky.

In the top right corner of the image the galaxy NGC6207 is also present and, midway between NGC6207 and the cluster, the galaxy IC4617 is barely visible.
