imaged Palomar 1 (Halifax)

The Burke-Gaffney robot imaged Palomar 1 for me. A small, faint globular cluster in Cepheus.

Can you see it? It's just above centre in the image. Just below, or south, of the little dipper of stars. Not easy...

Luminance only, 60 seconds subexposures, 10 stacked shots. FITS Liberator, Paint.NET. North is up; east is left.

To the north-east, near the top-left corner of the image, is the faint, small, oval of LEDA 2780572.
