May 2017 Update: My M22 Globular Cluster image

Following last Summer's trip to Les Granges in France, I finally got around to processing the first image I took on the imaging holiday.

M22 is a Globular Cluster in Sagittarius approximately the same size as the Moon. At 10,000 light years from Earth, this is the brightest Globular visible from Mid and Northern Europe. Accompanying M22 is the much smaller globular cluster NGC 6642 in the top right corner.

This image was taken in August 2017 with a TEC140 refractor, Atik 11000 CCD camera, and is 7 hours of LRGB images.
