NGC 4372

1 minute exposure. Meade 416XT CCD camera.
8" f/6 newtonian telescope at prime focus.

NGC 4372 is a fairly large and somewhat faint globular cluster in Musca. In a small telescope it appears as a hazy patch of light that can be difficult if there is much light pollution. In an 8" telescope it is easy to observe and to resolve. It is quite a good object that is often overlooked.

Combination of 10, 3 minute exposures using red, green and blue filters.
