Description

M92 is a globular cluster located some 27,000 light years away in the constellation of Hercules. It is believed that the cluster may contain as many as 400,000 stars.

The data is from our widefield rig in Spain. Unfortunately, our exploratory widefield image did not reveal anything of significant interest, so this image has been extensively cropped to focus solely on the cluster itself.

The cluster was photographed between 23 May and 11 June 2020.
