Hi all, just a quick smash at the double cluster

NGC 884 (bottom) and NGC 869 (top)

Each cluster contains around 300 or more stars, some of which are extremely bright at 50,000x more luminous than our Sun. These two clusters were like to be born of the same molecular cloud in the Perseus Arm around 3-5 million years ago, making them among the youngest star clusters known.

Galaxy found in the image is 2MASX J02192481 5645377

This is around 1 thousand 112 Million 193,247 Light years at 17.3 Mag
