Astrophotography Open Cluster

Astrophoto: Messier 29 – 09/23

Open star clusters are always welcome targets when it is clear that the weather will not hold in the coming days, and only a limited amount of exposure time will be available.

37 Subs each 60s with my Vixen VC200L VISAC at 1800mm focal length on my HEQ5pro with my CANON EOS M100(a) in Koblenz, Germany.
Stacking and integration was done with PixInsight.
