Omega Centauri with a big 16" canon new
      #5800549 - 04/15/13 01:34 PM

I couldn't resist pointing the telescope to this amazing cluster.
The size DOES matter...

Cheers,

Kfir

Mind boggling!

Was M20 also imaged with it?

Wow! When I was in St Kitts last year I was able to see this from my balcony with my binoculars, it is amazing! And this image is spectacular!

Wow, that's an amazing image of Omega Centrauri! We are lucky enough to see this amazing globular for two months from one of our higher altitude, dark sky sites B-4 the monsoons hit us in the summer. Thank you for sharing. David

Awesome! I wonder what it would be like to live on a planet somewhere near the middle of that cluster.

Wow. What a wonderful image -- you're somehow drawn to the light and covered by stars. Nice.

Beautiful image Kfir! I wished my 18" could do that! Well, I need more south anyway for that object.
