M3 – Globular Cluster

Last few nights have been Moon-ridden and the weather was clear even though seeing wasn’t best. So, I thought why not take a chance on a bright globular cluster like M3 even though it was no more than 20 degrees or so from Moon. The gradient of Moon light was rather strong but I was hoping that the background equalization (DBE) tool in Pixinsight will fix and it did for most part. This image would be much better, if taken on nights without Moon, but, something is better than nothing!
