Hi all:

NGC 1807 and 1817 are two open clusters in Taurus:

NGC 1807 is the cluster on the right (about 20 stars); NGC 1817 is the larger cluster on the left (about 60 stars).  The faint fuzzy behind NGC 1807 is the 14.9 galaxy PGC 16865.  There is a low surface brightness galaxy a few arcminutes to the west.

LRGB, 5 hours total exposure from Animas, NM
