M45 Pleiades - ISO 100, 120 x 30s subs with darks, flats and bias. Nikon D3200 at prime focus of Sky watcher Explorer 150P unguided.


Longest imaging session on one target so far. In total 1 hour of lights with 20 min of darks - one set of darks at the start of the session and one at the end. Still struggling with noise in the image though so can't push the nebulosity as much as I'd like. 

I think I can try with longer subs to see if that reduces the noise issues. The stars in the center are nice and round with 30s subs so I suspect I could go to 45s or even a minute and still have usable stars.
