Astrophotography Open Cluster

Astrophoto: Messier 37 – 01/24

A latecomer of the last starry nights in January. The beautiful open star cluster Messier 37. The full frame at 1800mm focal length looks very nice to me here.

I love open star clusters. Every time, I’m amazed by the beauty and diversity of these objects. In January, Messier 37 was also one of those objects that had to serve as a ‘filler.’ I think the choice was worth it.
