M25 in Sagittarius is about 2,000 ly away and contains 601 stars. It is approximately 90mm years old and it appears as though the spectral class "M" stars are not really part of the cluster. the foregoing information was obtained from

This is another beautiful subject in the Southern Milky Way visible this time of year and quite low in the sky at my particular latitude. This is such a wonderful area of the night sky and I think I will be working in this general area for the next couple of months.

I continue to work on my star shapes and processing in general and I think the image is another step forward in that regards.

Comments and/or criticism always welcome,
CS to all!!
