(RA 18h 10.8m , Dec. -712', 10.3 mag., 6 arcmin.)

This globular cluster is located almost 4 NE of n Ophiuchi (see finder chart below). As Palomars go, this one is bright!

That image was taken on September 5, 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. Eleven white exposures (240 sec. each) were combined with AIP4WIN.
