M15



M15 / Great Pegasus cluster / NGC7078
Constellation - Pegasus
Globular cluster

Date - 26/8/12
Location - Home
Seeing - III
SQM - 19.8 (NELM 5.3)

Telescope - 12" f/5
EP - 7mm Pentax XW x218 TFoV 0˚19'

Sketch materials - White Conte pastels and ink pen

Sketch notes
Fairly dim and tricky to resolve any stars in the glob but after 20mins they gradually 'popped' into view. Core brightness evenly spread from the centre.
Would probably have seen alot more but fairly poor seeing and high wispy cloud meant it was a tricky glob to sketch.
