Impressive globular cluster: Messier 3 (NGC 5272)

NGC 5272 (Messier 3)

My first deep sky target with my new Moravian cooled G2-1600 CCD camera. This wonderful globular cluster is NGC 5272 (Messier 3) has a bright core with a diameter of about 6 arcminutes and spans a total of 12 arcminutes. It is one of the finest globular clusters in the northern hemisphere and is also one of my favourite visual observation targets.
