The Double Cluster with NGC 869, Caldwell 14


04/09/13
Fills the eyepiece of 25mm with stars, bright and beautiful

10/11/13
'Bottom' cluster of Double Cluster
Amazing range of star colours
There is a bright red, very 'tight' star in the cluster which jumps out!

20/08/14
The Southernmost of The Double Cluster with NGC 869
Not quite so dense or compact as it's companion but an amazing sight in 18mm where both just fit into the FOV

07/08/16
Really doing the rounds of some of the most spectacular deepsky sights tonight
Amazing sight in 12mm and 18mm but even better in 25mm where both clusters fit into the FOV and fill it with a huge range of magnitudes and colours, fantastic

28/09/16
Amazing in 18mm where each of the clusters sit neatly in the FOV, filling it with a huge range of magnitudes of stars with some lovely bright yellow stars in the mix
Great to pan the view between the two clusters which interestingly have the same overall magnitude listed on Stellarium, at Mag 4.0
