Astrophotography Deep Sky Object Open Cluster

Astrophoto: Caldwell 16 – 10/23

The Open Cluster Caldwell 16, NGC 7243 in the constellation Lacerta. The result of a short evening.

43 Subs each 180 on an short evenings in september 2023. I had some serious star issues but could fix some of the problems in post processing. Anyway, I have to do some collimating on my cassegrain.
Stacking and integration was done with PixInsight.
