Description

145 light years across, 22K+ light years away, M 13 is probably in the top ten most-imaged targets for astrophotographers. I just got my Backyard Observatories-built Roll-off Roof observatory in operation and decided to pick some easy targets for a test run.

This is only about 2 hours of RGB data, but M 13 is so bright, that's enough!
