M13 Hercules Globular Cluster

Post by Menno555 »

After doing long exposures, I wanted to do some short 30 second exposures. M13 is now nice and high here, so an excellent candidate.
And also used the unity gain settings of the ASI071MC Pro, I never really use those. And I was not disappointed, it's even showing the "propeller" :)
