Globular Cluster Listing Update

20th December 2015
I've finally got around to linking the Globular Cluster Index to the individual images. I see that I have missed posting several clusters that I have imaged, so I will look over my hard drives and fill in the gaps. Where missing I have noted "pending" and linked to the gallery page for the interim. Also with Summer here, I will have a chance to capture the few that I have not imaged, e.g. M79 in Lepus and NGC3201 in Vela. I hope this set of images, which are scaled to 14' unless otherwise noted, will be useful to you if you are hunting for any of these clusters. I have observed all of these through my 16" and there is more variety than you may first suspect, with variation in size, brightness, degree of resolution, concentration and colour, and of course surrounding star fields. Tightly cropped images that are overexposed at the core tend to look pretty similar and often don't resemble what you see in the eyepiece.
