palomar & terzan

Palomars are not only quite difficult to visually observe but to also image. The following images are my attempts to actually capture all 15 of them. In part, this also helped to confirm their specific location. In my attempts to visually observe these globular clusters found that some of the coordinates provided by some sources as incorrect...so be carefull with older sky charts. Over a period of a year and half I was able to image all the Palomars and Terzans...though some may be lacking...I will attempt to update and upgrade the quality of these abulous globular clusters when the time allows (so many objects, but so little time to image). By the way, all of these objects were imaged with scopes between 12 to 18 inches; no bigger, that includes the Terzans. Some of the Terzans were no more difficult to image than many of the Palomars. I found that the biggest problem for northern observers is latitude. I am lucky to be living in Florida, which allows me to catch the Scorp/Sag region somewhat betterpositioned than most northern observers in the U.S.

Terzans
are not only quite difficult to visually observe but to also image. The images on this page are my attempts to capture all 11Terzans. Imaging these objects has also helped to varify and confirm their specific locations. Initially coordinates provided by some sources were incorrect. Looking forward to reshooting these globulars in the near future.
