Had a chance to image M15 and Comet Garradd early morning of Aug 2, 2011. Beautiful sight! This is 23 min total (2min and 30sec subs) through a Skywatcher Equinox 80mm, Canon 350XT modified, WO .8x FF/RR (400mm FL) and cropped to focus in on the Glob and Comet. Acquisition with Nebulosity, autoguiding with SSAG/PHD, calibration/align/stack in Nebulosity and processed in PS CS5.

Imaged from the Kitchener-Waterloo (Ontario, Canada) RASC Tilker’s dark site, near Listowel, Ontario. Morning of Aug 2, 2011.
