Equipment Details:

Canon G9X, 90mm, f14 Mak-Cass
Eyepiece projection at 40X

Image Details:

The Omega Centauri globular cluster is the only deep sky object I can capture at high magnification with a pocket camera and no tracking mount! It's that spectacular. Unlike many astrophotographs, this image is exactly what you can expect to see thru a small telescope at 40x. No embellishments here.
