Pleiades, (M45), is an open cluster of young stars in the zodiacal constellation Taurus, about 440 light-years from the solar system. It contains a large amount of bright nebulous material and more than 1,000 stars, of which six or seven can be seen by the unaided eye. I was working on this project 3 months ago, this image was shot between September to November, and I was able to capture this for 16 hours due to busy sessions on the remote telescopes. However, I was very happy that I was able to capture some of the H-alpha signals (reddish regions) which are very faint.
