Messier 3 is a large, bright globular cluster found in the constellation Canes Venatici.
Messier 3 is one of the brightest and most popular of all the northern globulars. It can easily be seen in any telescope but it is a challenge to observe with the naked eye.

This taken from my backyard over four nights in April of 2019. The final version consists of a little over 8 hours of total integration time.
