M3 is a large, bright globular cluster found in the constellation Canes Venatici.

This is the first usable image from a bunch of new or nearly new gear put together at the start of the 2015 season. This includes a new imaging camera and autoguider and a new laptop dedicated for image capturing. Even the telescope was almost new, less than a year old and had not yet been used for any real imaging up to that point.

I even put a software package (MaximDL) on the system at home. This way I can do the image processing work on the big screen from my easy chair. I know, life can be difficult but somehow I manage. Anyway, all this new gear works pretty good, if this first picture is any indicator
