The Owl Cluster is a star cluster found in the constellation Cassiopeia.
This is my most recent image of this cluster. It was taken with a 0.8X reducer on the telescope which geve it quite a wide field. So wide that the cluser is almost lost in the star field. My earlier version (see below) was taken without the reducer and for shorter exposure times which cause the cluster to stand out more.
Regardless of how the images turn out, visually this is one of my favorite clusters. Looking at it live through an eyepiece, it really does resemble an owl.
