GSO 8″ Richey-Chretien Optical tube, Skywatcher NEQ6 pro mount,Atik 383L+ camera, motorised filter wheel and Astronomik LRGB filters.

Open cluster in the constellation of cassiopeia. Lots of bright open clusters to image in this part of the sky.

Easy to find as there are three bright stars at the centre of this object.

Star Colour good as I kept the luminance at 1×1 binning but the RGB at 2×2.

LRGB image with 150 minutes worth of data with 5 minute sub exposures.

Can’t decide if this if a good image or not. Poor weather so far in 2014 so can’t be too picky.
