M13 first globular cluster attempt

Initially thought I'd over-exposed using ISO 800 but just about got away with it I think.


Full frame;








20x180s ISO 800. 19 matching darks.

Yep - no flats so coal background to compensate for bunnies  :lol:


Next time I will use a lower ISO. Learn every session.

Steve - you must have a very varied palate. R&C John Smiths (yum) and Cricks Sam Smiths (yuk).

I don't drink these days but could never and I mean NEVER stomach the offerings of The Cricketers. Old Peculiar? Oh boy  :ill:


Simon is still going strong with his 'Aladdin's cave' ...


Did I read somewhere you worked at Drax?

They are burning all sorts of exotic materials these days to provide. Judging by the black plumes that pump out through the early hours I suppose that includes old car tyres  :D

Thanks Ron. I prefer widefield myself.

I also prefer a darker background than most but let's not get into that  ;)

the R&C was OK for the beer when in the Cricks i was something out of a bottle the SS was awful


I worked on the building of the FGD plant, when Drax was a base station working fairly efficiently for coal fired,the FGD dropped this and the different fuels will no doubt reduce the life of the plant
