Perseus Double Cluster NGC884-869

Perseus Double cluster (NGC884-869). The emblematic star clusters of constellation Perseus are 7500 light years away from us, but they are closing towards us at 38-39 km/s speed. The relatively young clusters (12-13 million years old) contain about 6500 solar mass. A “never enough” object for photoshooting at autumn on the northern hemisphere. This image is a result of a good time under the late summer night sky.
