Thats a lot of stars!!!


Recommended Posts

Thats a lot of stars!.....M11 The Wild Duck Cluster and Barnards 110 dark Nebula. A two panel Mosaic imaged remotely from Spain with the Takahashi Epsilon 180ED and ZWO 2400MC pro full frame camera,  Total exposure time was 5hours. Worth taking a look at the full res.  

Here is a link to my Astrobin page where you can view in full res https://www.astrobin.com/users/asteroidbelter/

Thanks for looking

Breath taking Peter. This might seem a stupid question but is the globular cluster in the foreground or within the starfield filling the rest of the image?  The stars in the cluster are clearly a different colour to those surrounding it.    Gary

Thank you Gary, Although it does look like a glob it's actually an open cluster called the Wild Duck Cluster so I could be completely wrong but I just think its part and parcel of the surrounding region.
