Double Cluster... is there some dust around?!
Posted 25 January 2013 - 12:18 PM
QSI-583ws + AF-S NIKKOR 200mm f/2G ED VR II @ f2 + EQ-5 SynScan
LRGB, 7 x (8min + 1min) in each channel, HDR.
Besides the Double Cluster, there are many cataloged (like the dark nebulae Barnard 201 to the right of x-h) and uncatalogued (like series of weak reflective nebulae below and slightly to the right of x-h) objects.
Top part of the frame is occupied by some (weak) extended dark nebula.
Can you see them on the shot?

That's about the deepest Double Cluster shot I have seen. Nice work.
