The nice doublestarcluster NGC869 u. 884 (h and chi Persei)
 
NGC 869/884 belongs to the constellation Perseus and can be found in a distance of approx. 8000 light years.
Both enclose together approx. 700 stars, often blue ones with more than 5000-fold brightness of  the sun.
Because of bad conditions (clouds, very high air humidity, clarification) only one single exposure.

The open starcluster M45
 
From September to April this nice star cluster is visible in the sky with the bare eye.
What one can see only on a longer exposed photo,
is the blue shining Reflectionnebula.
They exist from the interstellar dust which reflects the light of
the stars.
Approx. 500 of them belong to this star cluster, nevertheless, they stand far apart.
The light of this star cluster is on the move approx. 400 years to us.

The constellation of the Hunter
 
This nicest one of the winter constellations in a wide-angel photo.
There are many well known Deepskyobjects to discover, like, among the rest, the horse head nebula B33 / IC434, the big Orionnebula M42, and in the middle of the picture the gigantic
hydrogen complex "Barnard's loop", which stretches through the whole constellation.
On the top left you can see the Rosette nebula NGC2237.
