    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.

    And Finally (phew you say :D)

    the end bit of the California Nebula - supposed to look like California :unsure: - 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

    trying to get dh interested but he doesn't seem to be taking the bait! his friend has a decent telescope and a degree in astronomy (that isn't the zodiac one is it?) so i'm going to see him and have a look;)
