My attempts at astro imaging

M45/The Pleiades/Subaru/The Seven Sisters


Call it what you will – Messier45 is a lovely open star cluster that also have some cracking nebulosity due to the hot young stars (young, as in born in the last 100 million years!) in the cluster passing through inter stellar dust and illuminating it.

This is 20x 5 min subs, taken in late September 2011 with my 8″ F4 Newt (Lovely diffaction spikes!) and a QHY8
