Berkeley 65 is an open cluster in Cassiopeia about 7400 light-years distant. It is reddened about 1.1 magnitudes according to the WEBDA database. It is located at the southeast corner of the Heart Nebula, IC 1805 a bit less than a degree NE of Maffei 1. I processed to suppress the haze of IC 1805 so the cluster would stand out more clearly.

Not much of a cluster but something to do with very hazy skies that made imaging deep impossible.

Due to band width limits I'm able to only post a cropped image.
