Here is a open cluster I was able to image from my light polluted front yard. I have attached a mid sized image of NGC1528, a full sized image with processing and exposure details is at:

The scope was my C8 with the Meade f/3.3 focal reducer. The optical path was at f/2.8. The camera was my ToUcam SC3.

Super nice image!! Congratulations!! Have you tried NGC 2158 yet? It's the little companion to M35. That setting is my favorite star cluster.

Thanks for sharing!

Great shot Jim!
Always amazing to see what those SC3 cameras can do!
I guess I'm gonna have to get me one of those f/3.3 focal reducers soon! wink

Thanks for sharing!
