M45 The Pleiades (seven sisters)


Recommended Posts

Hi all and a happy new year to everyone,

This is one I took during the end of  December. M45 is probably my favourite cluster due to the faint nebulosity surrounding the stars. 

this was 23x300secs for each LRGB filter. Thanks for looking

Nice work and isolation of the blue nebulosity and red tinge in the background.

Well done with this lovely image: very natural processing and colouring without over doing the saturation.

Thanks for the comments guys
