Omega Centauri

While in Namibia, I imaged the largest globular cluster or galaxy remnant we have, the ω Centauri. I used a rather dark 300 mm photo lens, and my Canon 1100D mod on the HEQ5. I have taken 36×90 sec, ISO 1600 at f/7.1, according to the EXIF. I may still have some unprocessed raws hiding in some folders on the external hard drives :)
