M45 The Pleiades

Recommended Posts

Spent a weekend in deepest darkest yorkshire!! Managed to get this :) 

 

22 x 120s, darks and flats applied. Stacked in DSS and edited in Photoshop.

This is one of my all time favourite targets. It's a bit glow-y due to the sheer amount of dew in the air, it was overwhelming my dew straps.

Nicely done, especially if you had a battle with the dew.

I must agree this is one of my favourite targets. Like the great nebula its a target that's harder that you would think to image due to the high dynamic range.

Thank you, yes everything was dripping wet. All that rain we had over the weekend and it was all in the air. I'm dead chuffed though :)
