Top 10 Astrophotography Targets for Fall & Winter

Every season has it's goto targets (pun intended) that any self-respecting astro-photographer must add to his "I've shot that" list. Fall and Winter have some of the years best wide field targets to choose from. 

I have compiled my Top 10 List for Fall and Winter. Even though all these objects are on my "I've shot that" list as well, I reserve the right to re-shoot them again...and again...and again :).
