M13 with the BRT

Last Friday I submitted a small number of jobs to the Bradford Robotic Telescope. So far I've had one back, it's an image of M13 in Hercules (which recently had a "close encounter" with comet 73P/Schwassmann-Wachmann 3).

As with previous shots, the above is simply a JPEG export from the FITS file via AVIS.

As I look at the image it's kind of interesting to think that the photons that went into making it will, at some point, have crossed paths with the Arecibo message.

Dave, that is cool to think about the photons heading in opposite directions.
