Rain is scheduled for the next week, but I got one clear night last night beforehand. There wasn’t too much to pick from, so I found some star clusters that are far away from the galactic plane. These don’t tend to need so much data to turn out well. In addition to the beautiful stars, you can find many small, distant galaxies in the backgrounds.
The first one was the Praesepe Cluster, also known as the Beehive Cluster and Messier 44. This is about 4.5 hours of data.
After this cluster went over the trees, the scope slewed to NGC 5466, a globular cluster. I captured almost five hours of data on this target.
