Description

M25 is an open cluster in the constellation Sagittarius and located some 2,000 light-years away (source: wikipedia). Of course I would have liked to have longer exposure but M25 went behind a tree during the session.

The object represents 41 on the Messier Objects with an ED80 project that I am working on.
