    Default M13 in LRGB



    M13 from last night. Finally, the drought is over! Clear sky, dark of the moon, excellent seeing and transparency. And the best guiding I have ever had with this mount.

    Yes, NGC 6207. There's a smaller one halfway in to the centre at the 11:30 position. It's IC4617.

    Wow Kathy, talk about taking advantage of a break in the drought!

    That is outstanding work and the processing is wonderfully done, well resolved to the core.
