This is the other Messier Object I imaged this evening.

I got 5 good frames of M13 in before my camera’s battery died (I actually had 2 bad frames, first of the night – they weren’t horrible, just a little bit of movement). It was actually starting to get a bit chilly outside, so I was fine with going in. Overall a nice night with a lot of success with my new equipment.

Since the viewing was so nice, I decided to stay up and get some images of M13. I had some guiding issues, so I had to throw out more than half my subs, but the end image, looks all right to me.

In addition to the Sculptor galaxy, I also took some images of M13 – the Great Globular Cluster in Hercules. It’s one of my favorite targets visually and with the DSI-II camera. This one shows it in context and inclues a small spiral galaxy in the upper right that’s visible if you zoom in to the large version. Overall a really nice night.
