    There probably exist more pictures of M13 then the number of stars it contains.
    However I picked this object to test the resolution capabilities/resolving power of my telescope. The relative short total exposure time of around 4 hours was gathered under good seeing conditions (1.1" - 1.4")
    Please check the full resolution version to appreciate it to its fullest :-)
