I captured this picture of the Hercules Cluster from my cottage up north in Quebec (Canada) on the night of the 1st of July 2011. The object had just past the meridian at zenith when I first started to capture images once it was dark enough around 11pm. We can clearly spot many small galaxies throughout the field which to me makes this picture all the more interesting!
