05-20-2009 M5-I've been wanting to image globular clusters for a while now but most of my time imaging is done at Fort McKavett.  Since this is a great dark sky site, I've focused on dimmer objects such as galaxies and nebulas.  At my home in Santa Fe, TX., I have about a 6 mag sky at its best.  I've finally decided to image a globular cluster and after doing so, I wondered why I waited so long.
