I don't generally shoot star clusters but when the full moon is out and there's not many narrowband targets clusters are a nice consolation prize.  

 

This image of M3 is just over 6hrs of RGB data, processed in PixInsight.  I used a little deconvolution, which is a bit of a mystery to me and took a lot of experimentation to get the settings right.  But I think it turned out all right.
