Pleiades

05 December 2019

This image is the result of the first clear night after having bought my latest addition to my collection of lenses which is the telephoto lens of the holy trinity. A fast 70-200 zoom lens.

I must admit, that I am a little bit underwhelmed by the result I got. This is mainly because of two reasons: First a sloppy polar alignment and second the way to short total integration time of only 29 minutes. I will have to put this object back on my bucket list for 2020 - then with a proper alignment and at least 2 hours of integration time.
