Good focus, nicely processed and generally, very excellent.

 

There is small spiral NGC 6207 just outside your frame in the upper left. I wish more imagers would offset M13 just enough to catch a lovely little spiral. I saw this little spiral the first time I looked at M13 and accidently moved my 14.25" Classical Cass way back in 1979.

Thanks. In my 80mm scope the galaxy was too small to really add much to the image, so decided to leave it out.

Beautiful. The Stellarvue 80 Access is an amazing little scope. It certainly shoots down the frequently stated opinion that you can't do serious astrophotagraphy with a doublet.
