Double Cluster... is there some dust around?!
      #5642470 - 01/25/13 12:18 PM

The shot was done during expedition to the Maydanak observatory, Uzbekistan, 2550m above the sea level, at the middle of several nights, Sep 11, 12, 13, 14, 2012.

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?

Direct links to 100% resolution, and to the most viewable (IMHO) 50% resolution.

Clear skies,
Yuriy

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