Sensational image, Jaspalchadha!  

I reckon there are 4 open clusters in your image. 

(2 at the top; 2 at the bottom)

 

Kind regards, 

 

Aubrey.

Top small ~1/4 in from left = Trumpler 1

Top large OC near center = M103

Bottom ~1/4 in from left = NGC663

Bottom near center = NGC659

 

NGC654 would have been just a bit farther left of the frame.
