The globular cluster Messier 80, shown from a 15-second V-band exposure with a Tektronix 2048x2048 CCD at the prime focus of the 4-meter Mayall telescope of Kitt Peak National Observatory, as photographed by Bill Keel of the University of Alabama. North is at the top and east to the left. The image has been block-averaged to 512x512 for this presentation, which uses a logarithmic intensity transformation to preserve information across a wide dynamic range. The field is 7.1 arcminutes square; pixels were averaged 2x2 for this display.
