Description

This is an image of globular star cluster M92. It's my first RGB image. With my newest equipment including my ASI1600MM Pro monochrome camera I haven't had for too long. I'm happy with the shape of the stars and focus (having a focal reducer also makes it much easier). The image is pleasant in general and there are also a lot of nice red and blue stars. There's also a tiny galaxy (PGC 59984) at the very bottom middle if you zoom in and look close enough. Luminance isn't applied here. Need to get that figured out still and was having some difficulty.
