    A beautiful double cluster of stars in Persues that is visible with the naked eye I found out last night as frost formed on my nosetip.



    The Dumbbell nebula


    A Small globular cluster of stars M15




    And Finally (phew you say :D)

    the end bit of the California Nebula - supposed to look like California - couldn't frame this well as couldn't see what I was imaging until i processed it this morning

    not a good image but included here as it took up 45 minutes of my life last night
