M13 is large, bright globular cluster found in the Hercules constellation.
This was the first image I took with the Nightscape 8300 camera and Sky-Watcher EQ8 mount. The telescope used was the EdgeHD 1100 with the 0.7x focal reducer attached. Guiding was done with the Celestron OAG and a Starshoot autoguider camera. The images were captured using the supplied AstroFX software that came with the Nightscape 8300 camera.
The images ware taken using the unbinned color mode of the camera. I have yet to get the color wheel going so an LRGB version of M13 will have to wait until next time. In any event, color balance is a bit off but at least the stars are mostly round.
