The big Perseus cluster was my first target since DST ended so after twilight I was to wait a little to get the object higher up. It was a good time to reset my keypad controller. Seeing was good I was working with a new laptop I was pleased the battery held up well under cold temperatures. I pushed the saturation a bit on NGC 1275 to get some details to come out but that one would benefit for from HA filtration I think.

I'm always a huge fan of the Abell cluster groups.

Beautiful image, excellent job! waytogo.gif

 

I am rather partial to galaxy clusters myself, my favorite so far being the great fields of Virgo and into Leo.
