Inside M13: A River in Darkness

Hello friends, I want to share with everyone an unforgettable experience, a journey inside the globular cluster M13.

Object Name: M13 (NGC 6205) Globular Cluster
Location: Benacebada, Granada (Spain)
Date: 2010.07.09
Media: graphite pencil, white paper.

Telescope: 16″ Dob. The observing conditions: with new moon, the seeing and transparency excellent.
For details inside of M13 I used maximum magnifications 523X (3,5 Hyperion eyepiece):It shows well defines bands of stars.The most spectacular was the dark zone or region near the center. Like a river of darkness.

I hope you enjoy it!
