ASI294MM-P and MC-P cameras, ES 8"f/4 Newtonian


Double Cluster NGC869 & NGC884 This pair of clusters are about 7000 light years away from us. They are beautiful targets for binocular and small telescopes. Located in the constellation Perseus, it may be visible to naked eyes if sky is dark enough. This is a combination of data from two cameras, 294MM and 294MC, with a total of 7.4 hours of exposures. There was a meteor struck across in one of the frames, which is super imposed onto this final stacked image. Cameras and exposures: ASI294MM-P (84x108s L bin2x2), ASI294MC-P (63x180s RGB bin1x1); 30 Darks 20 Flats
