NGC 6752

Combination of 10, 1 minute exposures. SBIG ST9XE CCD camera.
8" f/10 schmidt-cassegrain telescope at prime focus.

NGC 6752 is a large and bright globular cluster in Pavo that is almost totally unknown to northern hemisphere observers due to its -60 degree declination. It is visible to the naked eye and is larger and brighter than the better known M13. The cluster shows good resolution in an 8" telescope, and is one of the show pieces of the southern sky.
