The Fireworks galaxy NGC6946 and open cluster NGC6939 in Cepheus

Here we have the Fireworks galaxy, Arp29, Caldwell 12, NGC6946 – and the open cluster NGC6939 lying close by (in the image, not by distance) in the constellation Cepheus.  This is recently processed data from 20th August 2009 taken with the Hyperstar III and is 23 subs at 5-minutes per sub – could obviously do with quite a lot more exposure time for the galaxy, and some dithered imaging would have helped a lot with the quality as well.  Maybe next time 🙂
