Omega Centauri

Astrophotos | Home Page
Omega Centauri is one of the most spectacular globular clusters in the sky, but very hard to shoot from California as it just barely clears the southern horizon. For me, things are a bit worse as there are distant hills in that direction and this year I even had to trim some nearby bushes so that their branches didn't get in the way!
