Image of the globular cluster M3, obtained with the mini-mosaic camera
on a Nasmyth focus of the 3.5-meter WIYN telescope on Kitt Peak. The
camera uses two 2k x 4k SITE CCDs, mounted side by side to create a
4k x 4k field of view. The gap through the middle of the image shows the
separation of the chips. This is a 120 second exposure in the B passband.
