Hi this is the coordinates that I got from the plate solver on the image.but it is not the whole cluster only part of it as my camera cannot take all the image.

The camera chip being used has a small area. It will work well enough for planets and lunar work, but most deep sky objects are far too large. One way to work around this is to use it with a standard SLR camera lens rather than a telescope. A zoom lens, or a 50 or 28mm lens will capture large objects quite well. Adaptors can be picked up quite cheaply.

Hi Aratus thanks for the advice.I had a look and the camera comes with a 150 degree f1.6 lens and I can get a bracket to hold on the scope.so I might give that a go and experiment.

Nice result! What does a platesolver do?

I should have paged down and seen the answer. I think the best way to get M34 is with a DSLR and zoom lens. Even better if you have a good tracking mount, unlike me.

I've been having a go at this myself. I think it has possibilities.
