Omega Centauri 1200 mm

Omega Centauri (NGC 5139) imaged with a Meade AR-6 AT (152 mm f/8) achromatic refractor at 1200 mm focal length, an ASI 533MC astronomy camera, and an ASI 174 mm off-axis guider. This target is best imaged with a large aperture telescope to better resolve the individual stars. I used an 8 by 50 finder scope to spot this target.
