The Hercules Glob

It was supposed to be cloudy and rainy all week, but the sky detector test determined that was a lie. Last night was quite beautiful. The moon is starting to rear its bright head, so I needed something quick and easy. M13 is starting to rise behind my big tree, so I focused on it for 8 hours last night. Turned out pretty decent. I also think I have mostly fixed the bad background problems caused by reflections in the scope.
