|Date Taken: June, 2005 Location: Anza, CA
Equipment: Takahashi FSQ106 telescope & SBIG STL11000
Notes: M22 is a beautiful globular cluster in binoculars and expodes into detail with a medium size scope. Nearby M28 is a nice if not remarkable globular cluster. Part of the fun here is that there are TWO SMALL GLOBULAR CLUSTERS hidden in the image :). Look in the large image for NGC 6638 & NGC 6642! RRGB = 30/30/30.
