There was a brief hiatus last night after I'd finished capturing some subs of the Soul Nebula so while I waited for the Pleiades to come into view I grabbed 5 x 200 second subs in each of red, green and blue of the Double Cluster. Here's the web friendly size but a lot of detail gets lost so I urge those interested in doing so to click on the image to view the full-size version which nicely shows off the capabilities of my TEC 140 'scope and the DDM60 Pro mount which was operating, as always, unguided.
The Double Cluster (NGC 884 and NGC 869)
The image was cropped from a 4096 x 4096 pixel original which, while it showed a lot more stars around the cluster, didn't really add much to the party. NGC 884 is on the left and NGC 869 is on the right. You can read more about the Double Cluster here
I found it quite difficult to get a good look for this image, especially in its much reduced 1024 pixel wide version above, but in the end settled for a pretty severe colour boost together with the addition of some spikes around the brighter stars. Part of my reason for choosing a refractor was to avoid star spikes (diffraction patterns) around stars so it seems crazy in some ways to add them during post but in this case I think it lends a little more interest.
