I remember a few years back at the antennas, looking at Omega Centauri through my 60mm ETX. I was set up just North of the rise at the south of me. As the scope tracked the Afore mentioned Saguaro came into the field. Omega Cen passes between its arms. A grand view. The wide field of the ETX enable me to share the view. I believe Chris H & Paul L got to see it as well. I wished I had the ability to image it.

Nice pinpoint stars, considering the elevation. I can see the expected reddening. Well done. I have yet to image that cluster. Maybe I'll give it a shot this week through my Takahashi FS-128. Will post if I get anything worth looking at from my New River site (2200 ft, but north of PHX).

I assumed it would be a blurry mess and didn't bother with guiding. Well, for two minutes of exposure it turned out ok. Too bad we didn't get the image that Lynn Blackburn wanted, Omega Centauri setting behind a saguaro!
