Pleiades, M45

Pleiades, M45

Taken at the observing session of the Iowa City Astronomy Club on 10-30-2010 in Kent Park by Tiffin, IA. I used the Canon 300D piggy back on the Meade 2120 (mounted on an equatorial motor drive mount) with a Minolta MC Rokkor 135mm/f2.8 lens. 9 exposures, ISO 800, 30s, stacked using the program Nebulosity v2.3.0. With a little phantasy, some nebulosity can be seen. I also like the branches of the trees in the lower left corner.
