I recently posted an image of NGC 2477. Here is one of its neighbors, NGC 2451. It is a looser cluster with a little more color.

I have attached a mid sized thumbnail, a full size image as well as exposure and processing details are at:

Scope - Megrez II ED at f/2.6, Camera - ToUcam SC3 RAW.

Thats a really neat looking image Jim. Is the reddish glow around the central star nebulosity?
