Messi­er 92 (also known as M92 or NGC 6341) is a glob­u­lar cluster of stars in the north­ern con­stel­la­tion of Her­cules. It was dis­covered by Johann Elert Bode in 1777, then pub­lished in the ‘Jahr­buch’ dur­ing 1779. The cluster was inde­pend­ently redis­covered by Charles Messi­er on March 18, 1781 and added as the 92nd entry in his cata­logue. M92 is at a dis­tance of about 26,700 light-years away from Earth.

About Me

Hello, my name is Martin Rusterholz. I’m a Swiss amateur astrophotographer living near Zurich, the biggest town in Switzerland. My interest in astronomy started when I was 16. At that time, I built my first Newtonian telescope and mount. I studied physics at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) which was the only study including at least some aspects of astronomy and astrophysics. “Looking at the nights sky is an experience touching everybody deeply inside, something common to all human beings independent to the language spoken by the individuals”. Deep-sky astrophotography is my passion.
