This view of the constellation of Perseus from Tuesday night shows comet 17P/Holmes next to Alpha Perseus. The Pleiades star cluster (M-45) is at the left edge of the frame and the double cluster in Perseus is at the right. This image was taken with my 24mm lens with an exposure of 29 seconds at f/1.8, ISO 200.

nice capture Jim! :)

Just a note that Pleaides is M45 not M44.

You have also triangulum cluster, and governator cluster up there right next to the double!
