Double cluster in Persei NGC884 and 869

It has been cloudy , cloudy and rainy and yesterday was the first time in a long while I could take out the scope . I attached my AR127L to my mount and attached the canon eos 750d . The polar alignment didn’t really want to work this time , I think because of some problem with my mount , but next time I will fix this . The main problem here seems a screw that I put in because my RA nut broke down .

NGC 884 is only 11 million years old and therefore a very young star cluster together with cluster 869 it forms the double star cluster . The cluster is coming to us with 39 km/s but we do not really have to worry at this speed they will reach us in 2.279.934.545.7 years .
