Pleiades - More data added

Although conditions were very very windy last night, I managed to grab another 3 hours worth of lights. Only lost 4 frames from the whole session so not too bad on the whole. 

Added to the night before's session gives us just shy of 5 hours of data on this, which is the most I have ever had on any target.

Tried to process the same as last time, light pollution cleanup and basic stretch through through APP, fine tuning, colour, star control and noise reduction through Photoshop.

Redcat, ASI294mc pro and Star Adventurer capture rig.

Very nice image. The extra data certainly improved the nebulosity.

Great image of M45 and as a bonus you’ve also got the famous UGC 2838 spiral galaxy in there - very faint but definitely there - famous in that it’s nearly always in M45 pictures, UGC2838 is a spiral galaxy that’s 232 million light years away - imaged from your balcony 👍 I’ve cropped a snapshot of your image and highlighted the galaxy - always amazes me that we can get such distant objects on our Astro images - faint fuzzies !!
