Quote While photographing M13, I and Leif realized that M13 was an object that we already had photographed a lot earlier. This night we could not think of any other objects to photograph, and as we only had a few minutes left of darkness we slewed the telescope to an object we never had visited before - M56. It was nice to do visit a new object for us. The quality of this image is not to good (for example the dark subtracting is just a mess), but nevertheless it's still nice to have bagged another Messier object! Quote
