M45: Pleiades

17 December 2022

The original plan was to shoot the Rosette Nebula but that won't be visible up until 22:30 hours or thereabout, depending on the position of the telescope in the garden. So I decided on the Pleiades in the meantime and this is the image I got out of it. I assume that this will be as good as it's gonna get from my home and with the current equipment. For different results, I either need to switch the optics or go to a darker spot.

Compared to my last image of the Pleiades the spikes here are much more accentuated which is due to the since then replaces spider.
