The Perseus Double Cluster
Here is a stunning shot I captured of the Perseus Double Cluster on October 17, 2016. The Perseus Double Cluster is comprised of two open star clusters that share a interacting with each other. Surrounded by a huge halo of stars, both clusters reside at 7,500 light years distant. I captured these shots at Frosty Drew Observatory in Charlestown, Rhode Island, USA.
