NGC6522 and NGC6528 Globular Clusters in Sagittarius

(NGC6522 = RA 18h 03.6m , Dec. -30 02', 8.6 mag., 5.6 arcmin.)

This pair of faint globulars can be spotted between g1 and g2 Sagitarii (see finder chart below). NGC6522 (right) sits right in the center of Baade's Window - a gap between "curtains" of dust clouds which lets us peek just next to the center of our Milky and see stars on the far side of galactic bulge.

The above mosaic is composed of two tiles taken on June 4, 2002 from Harrowsmith , Ontario using Cookbook 245 LDC CCD camera on Celestron Ultima 8 f6.3 telescope. Twelve - thirteen white integrations (30 sec. each) were combined for each tile with AIP4WIN.
