This Galactic cluster in Perseus doesn't  of course get as much attention as the double cluster.  The  distance to NGC 1245 is over nine thousand light years, The two bright stars to the North east are HD 20023, and HD 20077, both are foreground sources at 1169 and 1496 light years respectively

Nice one, Peter - I like this object too: a good visual as well as imaging target.

Thanks David, you did very well with your image of Comet 2018 Y1 the tail being faintly visible
