This is one of the classic "double objects" in the sky, consisting of two rich open clusters whose centers are just a half a degree apart. On the left is NGC 884, on the right is NGC 869. This field is in the heart of our galaxy, the Milky Way, and therefore in what is known as the "Zone of Avoidance", meaning that very few galaxies outside our own tend to be visible. Nonetheless, there are a few galaxies present even here. The high-resolution version of this image (click on the link above) has a red arrow near the bottom of the image pointing to one such galaxy, mag-17.5 PGC 168282.
