Messier 13
I love looking at the night sky. The moon and Saturn are my favorite objects to view and image. I have been doing astrophotography for about 3 months and find that it is very challenging but worth it.

Notes: This was my first try at shooting a deep sky object. I chose M13, the Great Globular Cluster of Hercules because it is visible from my back yard. I look forward to imaging many more DSOs with help from my Auto Guider from Orion.
