Messier 13: Hercules Cluster (Globular Cluster)

06 May 2022

The Hercules Cluster is a bright globular cluster containing at least 500.000 stars that are about 25.1 light-years away. For the image itself: I still have problems with the collimation of my telescope which I have to solve. While I am sure that this will eventually happen, I am not so sure about how long this will take. For now, I ordered some new screws known as bobs knobs for my secondary mirror that should help to adjust that mirror.

We will see if that will help, but for the comming weeks I am looking forward to the ITV that will take place at the end of hmay after skipping the last two years due to the pandemic situation.
