I recently assisted my good friend, GMO volunteer and astro-photographer Kim Quick in post processing his data on Omega Centauri, the largest and most massive Globular Cluster in our Milky Way in the constellation Centaurus.
I still remember viewing this "one of the most beautiful objects in the night sky" as a child growing up in Australia.

Kim captured this data in LRGB over 3 nights in May 2020 using iTelescope's T32 at Siding Springs, NSW Australia.
Total Integration 4 hours 56 minutes
