M45 Pleiades close-up

This image of the beautiful and ethereal Pleiades cluster is a combination of my image data captured on the night of September 15th 2012 with image data I captured with the same 80mm telescope on 23rd and 29th September 2011. All images were captured from my set-up in the back garden at home, in a light polluted Berkshire town. It gives a total image time of four hours and ten minutes and brings out more detail of the wispy structures in the Pleiades cluster than my previous image I posted two days ago.

 

If the weather relents in the next few weeks I will try to add further image time and see if I can bring out even more detail.
