Am I correct in circling the upper left of this image as one giant cluster? #interesting

I see the enhanced blue background that I think you are referring to, very good eye! I'm pretty sure I would've missed that myself. After looking at it carefully in the inverted image I can't decide for sure myself -- it is possible it is a cluster, but perhaps it is a blue ghost from the nearby bright star that is adding light to the region and making all the faint stars appear just a bit brighter. Because the light seems granular, I'm leaning cluster

Thanks. I'll have to keep this in mind for future images.
