NGC 884/869 and Mayall II new

Mayall II was definately the hard one here, but once you find it, it definately is easier to find it again. It took me a little while to finally come up with the sketch of NGC 884/869. It took forever to draw in nearly every star in the field - but then I'm going to go back in tonight if it's clear and continue on with the sketch and draw in the rest I couldn't fit in all in one night (I had a lot of targets to fulfill and look at) .

Brandon,

Excellent observations of the Double Cluster (NGC 869/884) and Mayall II. You have done very well in your depiction of the famous Double Cluster. There are so many stars visible that it is difficult to render them all (I have posted my observation of the Double Cluster below made in 2008 (November 2). I hope that you like it. You also recorded Mayall II (a globular cluster associated with the Andromeda Galaxy (M31) well. Thank you for sharing them with us all.
