I have been imaging NGC 5566 for the last month. Once it went out of my view, I had the scope slew back 2 hr. and pick up Messier 10. Today I processed the "extra" data just to see what I had collected. I may have over processed it, but I like the yellow and blue stars in the globular cluster.

This is derived from: L- (15 X 300 sec (1 X 1)) and (20 *300 sec (2X2))
