Double Cluster in Perseus (NGC 884 and NGC 869)


Taken at the Iowa City Astronomy Club observing session on 10-30-2010 in Kent Park (Tiffin, IA). I used the Canon 300D piggy back on the Meade 2120 (mounted on an equatorial motor drive mount) with a Minolta MC Rokkor 135mm/f2.8 lens. 11 exposures, ISO 800, 30s, stacked using the program Nebulosity v2.3.0. The double cluster is always nice to see.
