Double Cluster (NGC869 & NGC884)

Here's one of my images from last weekend. I love the Double Cluster. It's a great pair of objects, visually, especially when using a wide-field eyepiece. So, I decided to try and capture it and the result is below.

Image Details:
  • William Optics 66MM Refractor
  • Mounted on a Meade 8" LX200 Classic with Milburn Wedge
  • Nikon D40 DSLR
  • ISO800
  • 21*30 second light frames
  • 4*30 second dark frames
  • Stacked in Deep Sky Stacker
  • Level adjustment in GIMP
