M45 Pleiades


Recommended Posts

Possibly a bit late in the season for this one, I was hoping to get more time for the dusty areas, but the cloudy nights and now the Moon phase have ruined any chance of that.

Anyway, here is a first attempt at M45, imaged across 2 nights 20th and 23rd Feb, 2.5 hours each before the target got too low. ISO-400, Stock Canon 77D + SW 72ED. 60x 300s (05:00:00) + 50 flats and biases. I think the longer subs may have blown out the stars a bit, but I like how they emphasise the brighter stars that are visible to the eye.

Stacked in Siril, processed in Siril, Starnet and GIMP.
