The Pleyades Cluster with Hyperstar

Recommended Posts


Taken advantage of the good weather we have had several nights this month I took this image of the M45 Pleyades Cluster here in Bogotá:


It is the integration of 2hr 6 min (42x3 min) at ISO400 taken with the modified T1i and the C925 EdgeHD working at f2.3 with the hyperstar lens. Filter was the IDAS D1.

I'd be glad to hear what you think.

Best regards,

Thank you very much to you all!

@Nick: I think that dot is a mistake done when using the HDR or Local Histogram Equalization in Pixinsight. Something to work on!

Best regards
