WIYN image of M15

This is a thirty-second exposure taken on the night of September 1st 1994 (UT of observation 02/09/94:05:47) with the 1k detector. This photograph shows a region 200 arc seconds square which has been compressed in brightness (approximately a double logarithm) to show both bright and faint features. This image shows the capabilities of the WIYN telescope rather better than most observations that night, since it has a "seeing" measurement of about 0.8 arc seconds.

Orientation: N up, W to the left.
