NGC 869 and 884, the Double Cluster

Another break in the storms, maybe this is the end of it. Under a beautifully clear and dark night, I was able to capture the Double Cluster below. Unguided, 257 x 15 second JPEG frames (roughly 64 minutes of exposure), 1600 ASA.

I attempted to get a parting shot of M6 too as it moves closer to the horizon, but the glow off my wall from my neighbors flood lights really ruined it. Even with 186 frames captured, it was like trying to take a picture with the moon out. Argh.
