Thanks Seanie and Stephen,

I'm looking forward to using the binos on a clear night and reading O'Meara's book when it is cloudy.
I'm really looking forward to getting back to basics in observing, having spent all my time CCD imaging in the last few years for a research degree..
I also like to thank everyone who voted.
Brendan, I have more images, mainly galaxies and nebulae. However, 99 per cent of my images in the few years, which is about 6k are all rather boring star fields.

Well done Eamonn !

Well done Eamonn, that's a class shot of the often forgotten "other" globular in Hercules, great detail and colours!

Top work, Eamonn!

There's a beautiful almost sunflower-like structure of the core that I hadn't seen before.
I did a double-take when I saw the size of the aperture; that's a huge bit of glass! :D

Thanks Paul, Michael, Martinus and wbean,

Paul: It is a challenge to image M92 to its full potential. May be its not as popular because it's smaller size than M13.
Martinus: I did a number of attempts in order to penetrate the core in detail. You need large aperture to obtain faint limiting images.
