Messier Marathon: M2, M10, M12, M14

Checking some more Messier objects off the list. M2 is one of the September observing list items, and the others (M10, M12, and M14) are all in the same area of the sky, the constellation Ophiuchus, so switching between them was quite easy.

I got M10, M12 and M 14 all in one session from my balcony. I got M2 on a separate night when I was also trying to get M39 but ended up being a little off, instead photographing the part of the sky that contains the North America Nebula (NGC 7000) which of course is too faint to even show up on my camera.

This brings my Messier total to 34 out of 110 objects!
