open clusters (slected images)
 

The observations and images below were captured using a variety of telescopic systems. They include a Meade 12 inch LX200, Meade 16 and the use of 2 (14 inch CST's) remote scopes. Imaging devices used; DSI's, Starshoot's, etc.

Open Clusters are some of my favorite objects for both observing and for imaging. The variety of colors that one can see in an open cluster is quite impressive. Thus making them a favorite for imaging...at least for me. Some of these objects range from a loose group of a few stars to hundreds of members. Yes, they are quite impressive.
