The Pleiades in their web...


Recommended Posts

Took this the other night while waiting for Orion to rise...a quick and dirty capture of M45.


In total I took 42 minutes of 120 sec exposures...I'm amazed at the amount of nebulosity that's visible, especially as conditions weren't brilliant with gusty wind, a 44% moon slinking down towards the west and my frozen fingers. Guiding was pretty bad all evening...between 2.5 and 1.7.

nice capture - you'd got plenty of the surrounding dust!  I'm now obsessed with bringing out the dust that many aren't aware is there, or drop the black point far too low...


well done, especially for just 42 mins

I never knew it was there before I started astrophotography...makes the cluster completely beautiful! Post your shots when you get them.
