Hello guys,

Last night was a lot of fun

Here is my first real attempt at a globular cluster, in this case M13.  This is also the first output from my new camera a QHY10.  Up to now I have been using a QHY9M+FW but thought I would have a go with a OSC to try and improve the overall image output frequency especially in light of the recent weather.  I think I still have lots to learn and do have a few OSC questions to ask but for now I'll post the image.

Thanks for initial comments regarding a slight core green cast, now fixed.

Would very much appreciate feedback as everything in this image was kinda new ground so I am sure there is lots of room for improvement !

Having wasted most of Saturday night on my wayward PHD ( see" PHD problems" in Autoguiding) I thought I'd better try to get something. So here's the old standard M13.
It's 7 x 400 secs RGB.
Overcooked core and the stars are a bit eggy but otherwise ...
