M107 (NGC 6171) -- Globular Cluster in Ophiuchus
A Cosmic Distortion
Almost immediately, one sees that something is not quite right with the Globular Cluster M107.
Between us and this ball of tens-of-thousands of stars, is an irregular dark cloud of dust which,
like looking at something with a warped mirror, distorts the cluster into ever-changing
unrecognizable shapes. M107 is a fine cosmic distortion which dances in the eyepiece.
