Palomar Globular Clusters information

Post by antares2063 » Mon Jul 16, 2018 12:50 pm

Was introduced to this fascinating list earlier this year by a friend via a sky and telescope article , sharing the details here, only Palomar 1 i think is too low in the north for Malaysian dark sites. However the further down the list one goes, not all of them looks like a "sphere/ball" of stars in the conventional sense...

I miss the place where stars shine bright, to gaze upwards in awe of the sight

Found this above resource from http://www.faintfuzzies.com . Detailed in depth charts that allows one to mark down where the faint outer halo globular clusters really are.

The star charts that i always use in mersing trips listed down all Palomars except for Pal 1 (mag 13.6) , Pal 13 (13.8) , Pal 3 (13.9), Pal 15 (14.2) , Pal 4 (also 14.2) , and Pal 14 (14.7) .

100% Credits to Alvin Huey for his valuable PDF resource.

Compiled some of the "hopefully" visible ones , view in eyepiece should match the DSS images to ensure that Im not staring at a random star field.
