A picture created during some software testing. I hate to waste time on sky, so while checking out some changes I made to my Starlight Xpress driving software I took some images of IC4665. Not because it was anything special, but because it was near the telescope Home point.

I hadnt realised its one of the brighter non-Messier open clusters. 

Its 2 weeks now since the last usable clear and moonless night in this part of Wiltshire. Hope everyone else is doing better.
