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.
