We have had non stop winds for a while. On a day the winds settled down I did a shot of M13 to see how bad the seeing was.

I was using my Meade LX200R 14 at F/10 with an Apogee U8300 camera.  The scale was 0.32 arcsec/pixel with this setup.

 

Normally we have bad seeing but the shots I was getting did not indicate bad seeing so I continued on with two minute subs.  I finished the sequence with 20 x 120 seconds per RGB. 

Not a great photo but it lets me know what I can get when seeing settles down here. M13 is a big cluster, this is a photo that covers more of the center of that cluster.

Good star colors. Resolution of the core is no simple task either. Nicely done!
