M56 - 4.9.2021 at 23.32 Orimattila, Artjärvi, Tähtikallio Observation number 101634

Visibility III / V


This spherical constellation looked very dichotomous. Individual stars appeared to rest on the diffuse mass. Due to the deteriorating weather, most of the exposures flew to the trash during the stacking phase.
