Catalogued Items




Ophiuchus is a rich part of the sky for globular clusters.  M9, M10, M14 and M107 are all in the area along with several clusters in the NGC catalogue.  Not far to the east of this lie the iconic targets of M16 (Pillars of Creation), M8, M20 and much more.  Unfortunately, these targets are a bit low from the UK, so thay are difficult for many of us.
