Christmas tree cluster and Cone Nebula.

 

Another reason for posting this is I would like to know what the object is up and to the right of the Cone Nebula. I had wondered if it was defect in my exposures but I saw it in other googled images.

Thought I had it uploaded fixed now, compressing the image for file size requirements is frustrating as the quality is nothing like the original.
