G1 Globular Cluster in M31

(RA 0h 32.8m , Dec. +3935', 13 mag.)

This is the brightest globular cluster in Andromeda Galaxy - but you need to look for it quite to the side ! (see finder chart below). It looks almost like a star and gets a bit fuzzy only at high magnification. G1 globular is indicated in the enlarged picture below.

That image was taken on September 9, 2002 from Harrowsmith, Ontario. Cookbook 245 LDC CCD camera was used on Ultima 8 f6.3 telescope autoguided with Cookbook 211 LDC CCD camera on a piggybacked 500mm f8 telephoto lens. Fourteen white exposures (60 sec. each) were combined with AIP4WIN.
