One of my favorite open cluster. I adore the view in my TV101 @ 54x . This time i tried to have it on film ^_^
I shot 9 frames times 300s while the cluster was low on the horizon on the night of the 13th of August 2015. Used my TV101 with the 0.8 reducer to have a 430mm f4.3 wonderful scope. Although it is an old telescope and i will sometime upgrade to a NP101 or NP127, it still has a lot to offer.
