Description

Messier 3 (NGC 5272) is a globular cluster about 34 000 light years away. It contains approximately half a million stars.

NGC 5263 is a galaxy at a distance of about 220 million light years. NGC 5251 and IC 4307 are galaxies at distances of about 500 million light years.

I had a problem with banding across the image probably due to city light pollution. Had to make background darker than I would have liked.

Gain: "highest dynamic range". Sensor temperature: ~ -22 C.
