5/03/03 Globular Cluster M4

After 27 straight cloudy nights I finally got an only partly cloudy night and practiced autoguiding with the 201xt. The result turned out to be the 2nd successful long exposure guided image I've ever taken. A serious shot would have required at least twice the exposure time, conditions were bad and I wasn't expecting to get anything. Given the circumstances I'm happy with this image of one of my favorite clusters, the globular M4 in Scorpius.
