Description:

M56 Globular Cluster in Lyra. SBIG ST-4000XCM, 14x600sec,imager Temp -20C, 30% Crop. Messier 56 (M56, NGC 6779) is located about half-way between Beta Cygni (Albireo) and Gamma Lyrae in an extremely star-rich region. It is one of the less bright Messier globulars, especially lacking the bright core which most globulars have. Nevertheless it is not too difficult to resolve, even at its rather large distance
