by on , under Astronomy Blog

The evening of the 4th bought crystal clear skies. So as I had recovered from my man-flu it was time to get out and do some imaging. Boy was it cold. It finally clouded over about half 2.

The double cluster known as The Sword Handle in Perseus.
Some nice orange stars showing up really well, showing these are really old clusters.

The Open cluster M35 in Gemini and the more remote open cluster NGC 2158.
