Description

I thought I was pushing what I could do without auto guiding here, about 80 1-minute subs. The data is good, I may work to reduce some of the noise, but I think the colors are accurate (at least as rendered on my monitor). I like this little cluster and its dimmer companion. Awful weather in Ohio for astronomy this time of year; maybe 1-2 clear nights int he past 2-3 weeks.
