Description

There was a very bright 3/4 Moon up washing out most of the sky. I decided I was going to image some open star clusters because I felt they would be less affected by the Moon glare. However the Moon did affect color in my image and I tried several things to repair the color but I was

unsuccessful. It's really kind of futile to try and image with a Moon up but since last night and tonight were the first clear skies that I've had in a while I decided to try and image in spite of the Moon.
