Deep Sky Image by Axel Canicio (M53)

I recently came across the following deep sky image image in an astronomy forum. It was captured by Axel Canicio in Alès, France. This is a first light image that he captured with his new astronomy camera DMK 31AF03.AS, which he purchased in the sales. The image is of the globular cluster M53 in the constellation Coma Berenices:

A great thanks goes out to Axel for this enthusiasm and we welcome him to the astronomy cameras community.
