Actually this is my return to this beautiful object located in the sea of the colourful stars :) This time I took it from south ( Namibia) that's why I enjoy this image so much. At my location it's no hihger than 20deg max. Messier 22 (also known as M22 or NGC 6656) is an elliptical globular cluster in the constellation Sagittarius, near the Galactic bulge region. It is one of the brightest globulars that is visible in the night sky.
