Interesting object, will look forward to the finished image.

I imaged it a month ago from Overgaard using my 10X30is Canons and my
eyeballs, the view was not quite as spectacular.....

Subject: [AZ-Observing] Omega Centauri

I bought some time on Itelescopes.net and set up a run on Omega Centauri
from Australia. When I imaged this it was at 70 degrees altitude. I set up a
90 minute LRGB run, all 60 second subs but it got cloudy and the domes
closed. I was able to get 12 images on it. I may try a different telescope
because this is almost a little too deep. It is an RCS 12.5 inch with a
focal length of 2331mm at f 7.4. The camera is an SBIG ST8 XME. This is
luminance only so I will be going back for more. Pretty impressive FOV.
