About this image

First Image with my new (to me) telescope. The intention is to get a bit closer to small galaxies and perhaps some of the larger planetary nebulae. The trusty ED80 will still get an airing for the larger targets and plan to add a reducer to that at some point.

Will add a recent M13 with the ED80 for comparison.
