Double star cluster


Spent 3 hours imaging this double target.

“The Double Cluster (also known as Caldwell 14) consists of the open clusters NGC 869 and NGC 884 (often designated h Persei and χ (chi) Persei, respectively), which are close together in the constellation Perseus. Both visible with the naked eye, NGC 869 and NGC 884 lie at a distance of about 7,500 light years in the Perseus Arm of the Milky Way galaxy.” Wikipedia 

There are more than 300 blue-white super-giant stars in each of the clusters.

Hope you enjoy it.
