Here's a ProData Set image acquired by Scotty Bishop, using an Officina Stellare RH200/FLI ML16200, of globular cluster NGC 4372 which lies in the southern constellation of Musca. It has a radius of 49.5 light-years and is about 20,000 light-years from Earth. Also visible is the Dark Doodad Nebula which is only 700 light-years distant and the bright star Gamma Muscae.
This is 1 hour 40 minutes of 300s subs (LRGB) acquired at El Sauce Observatory, Chile, from Telescope Live.
Anyway, hope ya like it!
Tom
