I was imaging in this neck of the woods, looking for potential comet IF033. That was an unsuccessful endeavour.

Oh well, better luck next time with the comet, David. But at least you get a fine image of M10!

Globular clusters are my favourite type of DSO. They come out better at longer focal lengths - with sharper stars for example - but for the comet search I had put the Hyperstar back in.
