Description

Here's my attempt at good ol' M13. Really like how my scope held the focus during the night. Also the "Star Shape" setting as weighting for the subs in AstropixelProcessor helped a lot to get the smallest and nicest stars out of the stack. Quite pleased with how this one turned out. Also only a minimum of post processing was needed.

Again in my featured series "how it all begun" I hereby present you my last version of M13 from last year: M13 Single Shot
