My best view of M13 yet

M13 on 9/28/07

Tonight, as I was out in my driveway, my neighbor Matt came over and I was showing him what I was viewing in the driveway. I figured M13 would be a good target to demonstrate what I was up to. Since it was a bit cooler than it has been (around 65) my camera had less noise than normal and I was able to take 50 15second images to put together this image which is my best view yet of M13. This view resolves a lot more stars than my previous views have. I think it’s a combination of lower noise, good focus, dark skies and longer exposure times. Anyway, I’m really happy with it.
