Dear friends ... and Dierdre,

Finally I had a chance to do some DSO work last night thanks to the clearing of the haze which characterized local skies all of this week. In addition to the very good transparency, seeing was also quite good.

I decided to pursue the globular cluster PAL 11 in Aquila and which is an observer's challenge along with the remaining members of the PAL catalog.

For a result based on just under three hours total exposure time, I kindly direct you to www.perseus.gr/Astro-DSO-Cluster-Palomar-11.htm (the image is hyperlinked and leads to a higher resolution result).

Anthony.

Anthony,

That is really fine piece of work. A very underrated cluster judging by your wonderful image.

Dave,

Looking at the hyperlinked image sends a very scarry message about just how rich the universe actually is and in spite of this particular and very limited view.

It is something which blows one's mind?! :blush:
