This is the Great Cluster in Hercules, aka M13, a showcase globular cluster for stargazers in the Northern Hemishpere. This was taken on the same night and with the same lousy conditions as this M57 image. See that writeup for more details on the conditions and the processing.
For this image, I used fellow Saratogan Rich S.'s modified 300D (Thanks Rich!), though the modified camera probably didn't make much of a difference with this particular object. Check out my previous attempt at M13 for a comparison. This is the full frame, shrunk for display on the web. The full-resolution image is also available. North is up.
