M107 - A Loose globular cluster in Ophiuchus


Messier 107 is a globular cluster in the constellation Ophiuchus. It is the last globular cluster entered in Messier's catalog of deep-sky objects.


We imaged M107 for just one hour before packing up our equipment. More time would have helped in making our image cleaner and more impressive, but one hour from a Bortle 4 or better is usually just enough to get a beautiful image for most globular clusters.
