Hi all this is my second attempt at M34 and took the images on Thursday 24th November,I used some dark frames to take the noise of the cmos chip and hopefully might have it correct.
Thanks for Looking

Somehow I missed this thread!

Those are certainly stars alright, and I can't see any 'noise' either. It doesn't look much like a star cluster though! I expect the field of view is quite narrow, and you may have to fish around for the object you want.
I use an 11" reflector (Celestron CPC 1100) and a 3" refractor, (Sky-Watcher ST80) mounted on an equatorial wedge, housed in a 2.2m Pulsar observatory. I use a ZWO ASI 120MM, ZWO ASI1600MC and Canon 1300D for imaging.
