Description

The globular star cluster M3 in the constellation Canes Venaci consists of about 500,000 stars.

It was the "second light" for my new ZWO ASI295mmpro on the 130/910 TS Photoline Apo Triplet

It was stiched from 305 x 30s at gain 125 (ca. 2.5 hrs) with Astro Pixel Processor. PP in Photoshop.
