Pavo globular cluster NGC6752.
"NGC 6752 was first identified by one James Dunlop of Parramatta on 30 June 1826, who described it as an irregular bright nebula which could be resolved into a cluster of many stars, highly compressed at the centre. This corresponds with a core region densely populated with stars around 1.3 light-years in diameter, which indicates it has undergone core collapse. The cluster lies around 13,000 light-years distant and is one of the closer globular clusters to Earth."

GSO 10" F4 Newtonian, Canon 1100Dfs, 42 x 1 minute subs, HEQ5 Pro unguided.

Looking the large size in Astrobin I can say that it is very nice image and well processed. The faint stars of cluster is very well: sharp and with good color.

I liked the size of stars very much and the core of cluster is very well resolved.
Congratulations ! anim_claps.gif

Thanks Scotty. I do lots of mid tone stretching as a linear stretch would burn out the core. Using masks in photoshop also helps prevent core burnout.
