Coathanger was created by richardsweeney

I had two clear nights over the weekend and with the moon about my best bet was a cluster. I'm still tweaking things on the Epsilon and i don't quite have it singing yet. I may have some tilt on the sensor.
Anyway i'm quite pleased with how this turned out with an 85% moon.

Hello, Richard.
Yes. We all love the Coathanger (Cr. 399) which sits in Vulpecula the Fox.
What impresses me most are your colours.
We can see those bottom 2 stars are a delightful orange.
Their spectral classes are K0 and K5.
I also greatly admire the additional open cluster NGC 6802 which is to the left of the star 7 Vulpeculae.
I have never observed it as I need a dark sky to see it.

Clear skies,

Aubrey.

Thanks Aubrey, and thanks for the info. I think the new camera produces some lovely colour, looking forward to the longer nights to give it a good run. 
How dark is the sky from your location?

I'm sorry to say I live in a Bortle 9 location, Richard.
I'm in south Dublin.
Best regards,

Aubrey.

Oh that's tough going. I'm incredibly lucky to live in East Cork, with Bortle 4 sky. I do have major issues in certain directions with public lighting as i'm in a housing estate. The neighbors often leave their lights on too but i can't complain given the wonderful conditions i have to the East and straight above.
