ZWO ASI 6200MC PRO COLED Espirit 150mm 45 x 100sec
Discovered by astronomer Charles Messier, who added it to his catalog on August 31, 1780, along with Messier 70. It is one of the weakest globular clusters in Messier's catalogue, with low metallicity. It can be seen as a small mist in binoculars. However, due to its southern location, it is a difficult object to be seen by observers in the Northern Hemisphere.
