    Default M10 (NGC6254) - Globular Cluster (YAGC, yet another Globular Cluster)



    Seems I've taken a fancy to these. Shot this last night with my ES102, field flattener and QHY23. Guiding was problematic again. Last time I blamed it on atmospheric conditions. Now I am beginning to wonder. I could not find anything that was not tightened down and I had recently gotten outstanding guiding at 2m so it's probably not the mount. Balance was good, PA was dead on, everything was tight. Perhaps I need to configure this scope of OAG and see if that makes my troubles go away? The net net of it all was I tossed about 50% of the subs. 50% of those where Lum and on analysis of the intermediate results R was notable superior to Lum so I ended up using R for Lum, using only 40m of subs out of an all night run. Still, the result is not too bad

    I know nothing about guiding. Appears to be a difficult art.

    Nice image.

    IMO globs seem to handle lower exposure times better than other objects. This one came out nicely, despite the guiding issues.

    Turned out very nice Richard. Wouldn't know you had guiding problems by looking at the nice round stars, or, the great detail all the way to the core. Nice colors too.

    If you didn't say you had guiding problems, I'd have never guessed. Looks great!
