M92 is a globular cluster found in the constellatin Hercules. This is a bright cluster and is also known as NGC6341.

This was taken wth the MN190 Maksutov-Newtonian telescope from my back yard in the city. M92 is a bit tricky to photograph because the core is very bright and in a long exposures image it tends to over-saturate. But shortening the exposure time causes the surrounding stars to disappear. So it’s a compromise, the core does end up a bit bright but most of the stars in cluster also make it in the image.
