Pictures of Star Clusters by Dick Locke. Star Clusters are simply groupings of stars, and the groups are smaller than galaxies. There are two types: Globular and Open. This page is evolving to present a visual index of my star cluster pictures.

This was an old Nikon D100 DSLR Image of Omega Centauri from the Davis Mountains, 05/2004. New Omega Centauri here.
NGC 2477, (just a picture here) another nice cluster, in Puppis. This was a fun early-evening target. More info below.
Open cluster in Canis Major
NGC 2451 (just a picture here), an early evening open cluster. I must say it looked great in binoculars, and the picture doesn't do it justice. This is in Puppis and was too far south for Messier to see. More info on this page
