NGC 457, the Owl Cluster is an open cluster found in the constellation Cassiopeia.
This is one of my favorite clusters to look at during the summer and fall season. In these images, the owl shape is there but it doesn't really stand out that much. But when viewed live at the eyepiece this cluster really does resemble an owl.

This is my most recent image of this cluster. It was taken with the CFF 132 refractor which has a focal length of about 938mm. This caused the image to be zooomed in somewhat closer than the other pictures I have taken of this cluster.
