    My first M13 image of the season and first in a little while. I took this at prime focus through my 127mm Mak-Cass, single exposure, 10s at ISO3200:

    Clear skies!

    Well done, Reggie. This is a beautiful star cluster to observe and to image. The last time I imaged M13 was in 2017.

    Link to my 2017 images: https://www.astronomyconnect.com/forums/threads/m13-reprocessed-03-06-2022.13348/

    I'm able to handle my 10" Dob again, which I have always wanted to do lunar and planetary imaging with. A few days ago I ordered a tracking platform that should be here by the end of the month. It's not exactly high end so it's probably going to need a few tweaks, as well as time behind the Dob and camera for me to become proficient with the setup. It is primarily intended for planets, but I'll be trying it out on DSOs, too.

    In the mean time, I may go for M13 with 'My Little Friend' (AT60ED) or my 'Maserati' (TV-85).
