Description

This photo shows the Messier 92 globular star cluster or M92. It is about 27 thousand light years away from us and contains many thousand stars with a total mass of about 200 thousand masses of our Sun, but with 11 billion years more than twice as old as our Sun! Planets within this cluster hardly know any nights, because their sky is simply full of stars much closer to them than on our own sky on the Earth. This photo was taken for 60 seconds with ISO 800 with a Canon EOS 600-D mounted on a telescope.
