Double Cluster - Cadwell 14 - NGC869 + 844


Recommended Posts

Having only "found" this last week and then having an excelent visual through Eddy's new scope, I decided to have a crack at this tonight. There is a wonderfull range of colours in these two open clusters, although I don't feel it shows too well in this image.

Scope is st80 with 350D. Best 80% of 30 subs, 30 secs @ ISO 800. Equal darks plus 10 x flats.

Stacked in DSS and process in PS5

Nice one Mike, this is becoming one of my favorite objects to look at, just love it. You have some good colours in there.

I think I may have lost some already to be honest Steve, I might have another go later, it was getting on for 2:30am when I did that last night lol

I really like star clusters and that's one of the best.

A few different colours captured and it looks great Mike.

Just for the sake of being pedantic, NGC 844 is a 15th mag galaxy in Cetus.

The other half of the double cluster is NGC 884, but lot's of references incorrectly label it 844.

But whatever, it is a very nice image.

Sorry, but you know I like numbers :D .
