tried for Palomar 10 (Halifax)

Thought I'd try one of the Palomar globulars, number 10 in particular. It is one of the higher ones, in Sagitta. Super-faint. Can you see it? It's the smattering of faint stars near the bottom-right. There are artefacts in the image detracting from the view but the very dim globular cluster is there.

Luminance only, 60 seconds subexposures, 10 stacked shots. FITS Liberator, Paint.NET. North is up; left is east. Centred on TYC 01603-1063 1.

Where Is M13? says it is 34 500 light years away.

It was back on 3 Jul that we tried to view and image Palomar 4.
