This is NGC869 often called the "Double Cluster". Iit consists of two open star clusters at a magnitude of 3,80 in the constellation of Perseus, some 6781.7 light years away.

Sky was so terrible with the moon and upper level smoke this was limited to 6 exposures of 240 seconds.

Don't even get me started on the economy... I'm supposed to retire in 5 years and now that's questionable...

Yours may be even worse than ours. Guess it could be worse we could live in cold Europe....

Think some of those may already be in the Galley -> Guide section since I found Andromeda blew out of my capture zone for my ASI533MM Pro.
