Omega Centauri (NGC 5139)

A swarming of about 10 million stars, located some 16000 light years from earth. The dark sky is required to glimpse the cluster with the eye alone, but a telescope reveals a glorious cluster of densely packed suns!

For this image I used my Canon DSLR + Skywatcher 4" refractor + EQ5 Single Motor near Bhuj, India.

30 Jpeg x 45 seconds @ ISO 800
10 Darks
Stacked in Deep Sky Stacker and Processed in Photoshop CS5
