Globular cluster M2

Captured on an exceptional night with 5/5 transparency and 4/5 seeing. Unfortunately a half-moon only allowed for photography of bright objects. The overall brightness of this image was twice that of my capture of M15 the previous night, and the stars are pinpoint.

Nirvana, August 29, 2010, 11:15 PM - 12:30 AM; T=+18 C, seeing near-perfect. 7x10 min, Orion Starshoot on 120mm refractor; Hutech LPS filter; autoguided.
