M13 (April 24, 2017)

OK, it's not like I've never shot this before, but the air was very still Monday morning between 12 and 2.  M88, my first target, had drifted behind a tree, and M13 was ideally placed.  Just Lum here, no color, but this is 14x240" taken with the SXVF-H9 through the CFF 290 Classical Cassegrain at f/7.93. Of course, if I were in a darker location, I could muster more contrast and probably even more stars; this image was processed to maximize the number of stars seen (including without blowing out any of them) from my backyard.
