NGC 6791

NGC 6791 LRGB new

NGC 6791 is an open star cluster at Lyra. It is one of the older clusters in our galaxy. Just 5 arc-minutes Northwest of the cluster is the star Kepler-19 which has been found by the Kepler mission to be hosting exoplanets.

I decided to image this cluster in a wide field of view that also shows the dust in the area, making for a nice frame.
