Hello everyone, I finished all of the nebula on my list and was looking for some other targets. Normally I would jump to some galaxies but my longer focal length scope is on the shelf waiting for an adapter. I decided to try some open clusters at 540mm FL and I have to admit I was a bit surprised. Some of them really have some interesting FOV's.

Thanks for looking,

JB

Thanks, Scott! It was fun and I will go back next year and try some of them again with longer exposures.

Really nice stuff! Yeah, that's a great focal-length for clusters and the assorted oddities that are near them.

Very nice and have to agree, the few I have shot were at 480mm and depending on the target it makes for great compositions. Well done!
