Antares region - 2010 May

Contributor: Kos Coronaios

Date: 2010 May

"At just over 1 west from Antares is the magnificent 6th mag. globular cluster M4. A showpiece in small telescopes
the stars in M4 are easily resolved and a lovely string of 11th mag. and fainter line of stars runs through the central region
of the cluster. Often overlooked is the compact 9th mag. globular NGC 6144, only 38' north west of the bright star that can be seen
just to the left of centre in the image."

nothing more to see. please move along.
