M4 2007-08-08

During last night I connected a Canon EOS 400D camera to my C8 SCT to check the images that can be obtained from Majadahonda. As a first test, I pointed the telescope to M4 (Cat's Eye) Globular Cluster in Scorpio (Mag. 7.5). The following picture shows the result of an exposure of 1 minute in the focal plane with the histogram modified to reduce the light pollution.
