Description

After my M92 project, the sky continued to perform well for several more days with 21.5+ SQM and FWHM on 15-minute subs under 2".

NGC6384 was positioned very well for imaging almost 6 hours per night. I was surprised to find very few amateur images of this object, although Hubble really focused on this in 2011...

NGC6384 is 77 million light years distant. Its relatively small angular size of 6' and the number of foreground stars in our own Milky Way galaxy made this a challenging target even with a 24".
