Messier 35

Almost two years ago I made some wide field pictures, and caught in the same time Messier 35 open cluster. This time M35 and its tiny neighbour NGC2158 were my main targets. A few days ago I pointed telescope in this direction and collected some amount of photons. Conditions were moderate, transparency far from perfect, but at least no Moon was present in the sky.

So here it is – Messier 35 open cluster in Gemini. Made by 130mm Photoline refractor and QHY163M camera. 130 minutes of total LRGB exposure.
