thanks Tim, your so kind mate, but theres quite a bit of detail considering its a single frame. the weathers bad here tonight, its been raining on and off all day, no chance of me catching anything tonight "maybe a cold" hope you have better weather.   charl.

I'm not being kind Charl... just truthful. Looking at the Pleaides shot, its amazing you have got so much nebulosity from such short exposures. With nice focused stars and good star colour too. Really nice images that shows you don't have to do hours and hours and hours of exposures to get good results. 

p.s. weathers rubbish here too :clouds1: with the prospect of :clouds2:. Tim.

thanks Tim,  ill have a job at getting my head through the obsyroom door, its grown so big :icon_biggrin:. i try and keep my exposurse down and use a high iso and deal with the noise in processing because with shooting from indoors i only have a short time window when the subject is in range, i have been known to do 4min+ when outside, but thats not too often as ive got a gammy knee and have trouble carrying the mount ect outside.  its nice and clear here tonight, may get a few shots later "fingers crossed " hope you have clear skys ,  charl.

      Hi all,
      For a long time I wanted to shoot this frame, probably from the early days of my astrophotography adventure.
      Finally after all these years I managed to get a decent result of the 'stuff' between these two beautiful nebulae. Fairly happy with the image but always looking for improvement.
      I hope one day to redo this all with a mono camera and filters. 
      Apart from NGC1499 , M45 and the Baby Eagle Nebula no idea what else is in the picture. If you happen to have an idea feel free to educate me.
       
      Some info on image and capturing:
      Widefield Pleiades to California.
      Taken over 2 nights with a total of 11hrs 25min integration.  
      With a stock Nikon d610 and Nikkor 85mm 1.8 objective.
      Tracking was done with the Skywatcher Star Adventurer.
      Lights and all calibrations frames were stacked in DSS.
      Processing was done in Adobe Photoshop CC using Adobe Raw, GradientXterminator plugin, HLVG plugin, Nik software plugins and Photokemi action set.

      Another test shot for brand new lens (same night as other tests of the same lens).
      Again, main stars and their colors are not distinct enough.

      Capture: 16 lights x 10s x 1600 ISO, master bias
