Description

Perseus double cluster from my backyard. I planned to do it in only one night, but very bad framing ended up in one night on NGC869 (80min) and the other night on NGC884 (88min). First time I do a panorama on photoshop, but some dark magic happened and it worked on the first try! W00T!
