Messier 15

I finally got some time on the Takahashi Epsilon-200 the other night. The NJP mount was in need of some minor repair and readjustment. With the help of a couple of my astronomy pals we got everything put back together, balanced and aligned. The mount did very well, although I think the autoguiding needs a bit more tweaking.

Messier 15, in the constellation Pegasus, was one of the few globular clusters that night that were bright enough to shine through the moonlight.

This is a composite of 15-, 30-, 60- and 120-second exposures.
