Description

I decided to pronounce the propeller in M13 just a little more so, a put it on the table again :-)

Actually this was meant to be a test image to see if my RC10 needs alignment or not after months of transportation in the car. A large GC like M13 should offer enough stars to see. Weather was not exactly friendly and the cirrus clouds left over 78 minutes of 120. Better than nothing....

NGC 6207 (lower left) is at mag+11.3 and IC 4617 is listed with mag+16 (in SkySaf), they even show details and there is more faint PGC stuff going on in the background. Unfortunately, 6207 has become victim of some tilt that I found so, this really needs hands on!

So, I found two things, first yes, it needs alignment, there is a tilt, and second, it looked unexpectedly promising after first time STF so, I decided to give it a try and funny, I liked it in the end :-)
