Revisiting globular cluster M3

Located about 34,000 light-years away within the constellation Canes Venatici, this tight ball of half a million stars formed just outside the disk of our galaxy – and so its stars never got mixed in with it. They’ve just been sitting there for over 11 billion years.

One of the prettiest globular clusters in the sky. I imaged this a long time ago, but this is a second visit using my latest equipment.
