Another Globular Cluster!
Globs kinda remind me of Reggae songs -- I like them, but they all kinda seem the same and I can't really tell them apart. But Globs are fun to shoot and they are good practice.
I shot this with my old rig -- my CPC 800. You might say "gee John, why the hell don't you slap your camera on that spiffy new rig you just bought? I thought it is supposed to be all kick ass and stuff!"
Okay here's the deal: I really need to take the new scope to dark skies, which means transporting it. But I'm waiting on my cases to arrive so it doesn't get tore up (be here in 4 weeks). Also, I CAN image at home but I need to use a Guidescope for guiding since I can't see Polaris from the house (Guidescope is another 2 weeks). I'm also waiting on a 24v AC converter. Confused? Well, let me simply say I don't have all the pieces in place just yet.
So until the Takahashi gear officially goes "on-line", I'm still using the CPC on available bright targets -- like those loveable Globs (even though I can't tell them apart).
I took this image on Mother's Day (actually, Mother's Night)
