My second attempt at M45 (the first attempt with my SX26C is within the album Deep Sky I). Although this is not an ideal field of view, the close up of M45 does reveal quite a lot reflection nebula structure. The galaxy at the bottom right is PGC13696.  I decided to go for quite a long exposure on the L to bring out the faint dust. I would like to have captured more green and blue data. In total, about 7 hours. 

LIGHTS:L: 19; R:12: G:5: B:6 x 600s. BIAS: 100; DARKS:30; FLATS: 40 all at -20C.

From the album:

Deep Sky II
