Diamonds in the sky

This is the double cluster in Perseus. It is called h + chi and it contains over 600 blue giant stars. More information at: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Double_Cluster
See my astrophoto in high resolution at www.astrovox.gr or at dark.astrodigital.net

When I am working on such delightful celestial objects, I sometimes think astrophotography is a pre-stage of poetry. The astrophotographer, invests all his experience trying to interpret a fact into a shapes and colors, so a poet tries to interpret his emotions after looking that pictures into wonderful words.
