Double Cluster NGC869 and NGC884

The Double Cluster (also known as Caldwell 14) was taken from my Creedmoor site on October 14th, 2020. This unique cluster consists of the open clusters NGC 869 and NGC 884 (often designated h Persei and χ Persei, respectively), which are close together in the constellation Perseus. Both visible with the naked eye, NGC 869 and NGC 884 lie at a distance of 7,500 light years.
