Digital Image: Messier 92 in Hercules

M92 Stack Processed Watermarked


M92 is one of the brighter globular clusters in the northern hemisphere, but it is often overlooked by amateur astronomers because of its proximity to the even more spectacular Messier 13. It is visible to the naked eye under very good conditions.
