M13




This was a revisit to M13 which I originally sketched with my old 8" but the accuracy of that sketch wasn't great so I've been looking forward to trying it again with my current scope.

Dark skies and average transparency made M13 light up and was resolved even with a low power EP but as I used the Leica ASPH + Baader VIP barlow to really up the magnification and get that huge ball of stars look in the EP.
At x310 I think I have lost some of the shape of M13's 'arms' which usually stretch out showing its shape but this is the kind of magnification I like to view globs, in the past my globular sketches have all been around x220 but since was the 'king' I thought it deserved special treatment. :)
