Equipment Details:

Canon Camera at 200mm riding on the sky-watcher Star Adventurer star tracker.

Post-processing Details:

Took about 70, 1min subs, along with 10 darks, stacked those in deep sky stacker and further processing done in Photoshop.

Image Details:

Here's an image of M45 or the Pleiades star cluster I captured. Its really high in the sky now and is a great target for some visual viewing, as well as imaging. I really love the blue reflection nebula in this cluster, and is one of the best DSO's out this time of year. Its located just 444 light years away in the constellation of Taurus. Clear skies!!
