It is clear to everyone that astronomy at all events compels the soul to look upwards, and draws it from the things of this world to the other.

Reflection Nebula plus Open star cluster

Taken with AT111ED on Celestron CGEM mount- NGC1931 is an open cluster surrounded by a Reflection Nebula, located in the constellation Auriga a degree west of M36.  Visible in dark sky area with a 3" scope.   This is a 70 min Combined Lum. and Ha images (30x2min 2x2 Ha and 5x2min 1x1  guided images).   The cluster is in the bright area.  I will try to blend in another image on this one to show the cluster, mainly 4 bright stars.  A color image can be seen in March issue of Astronomy.  I usually find my imaging subject in Astronomy each month.
