A pair of clusters

The next clear evening seemed a long time coming and when it did the moon was prominent and only just past full. Under the conditions I decided to add a couple more clusters to my collection. M 39 (Cygnus) & NGC 7243 (Lacerta) were suitably placed so became the targets for the session. Neither are very spectacular as clusters go and are barely noticeable at the centre of each image being in such rich star fields. I continued using the 300mm Tair lens which has a nice field for this type of subject. I am finding its performance very pleasing both for astronomy & normal photography....M 39 is at top. Transparency was good and both are full field images. Details (for both) : Tair-3S 300mm@F5.6 . 20x 2 minutes @ iso1600 with CLS in DSS, FIV, CS2 & XAT
