I didn’t think that I ever dare to sketch this beautiful queen of the northern sky.
Yesterday at 23.00 the Moon already hung on the horizon, fortunately Hercules was near the zenith.
By observing this globular cluster, at first You will see lots of stars at the center of M13, but by carefully and patiently watching, after some time we even notice them twice, especially on the sides!
I love to look at this wonderful globular cluster in the high magnification, so I used a 17mm wide-angle eyepiece for the telescope’s focal length of 2800mm.
I encourage you to observe this wonderful object in a large power 🙂
