In my effort to photograph all of the Messier Catalog, I will often take 5-10 minute quick exposures of objects which are in the vicinity of what I am imaging that session. This wide angle 6-minute integration of M19 came about while I was shooting the Lagoon Nebula. M19 is located 28,000 light years from earth and shines at a magnitude of 7.7, which makes it a good target through binoculars. The 400mm Focal Length shot doesn’t do it justice, and next July when I get my 6-inch scope working again I will zoom in on it and take a proper picture. But for now, one more of the 110 Messier Objects checked off the list.
