NGC 869 & NGC 884 - The Double Cluster in Perseus at Orion Store
I‚??ve been an avid backyard astronomer since the 4th grade and have most of my life, owned some sort of telescope. In late 2010, I purchased my first imager, the Orion Planetary imager & Autoguider and now, provided I have the next morning free and a clear sky that night, you‚??ll find me somewhere, most often at Fremont Peak, with scope and camera going.
