M45 Pleiades Cluster
This picture of Pleiades was taken February 16, 2009 from my backyard in Overland Park, KS. Conditions were anything but ideal with a lot of light pollution. I had to do a lot of post processing to remove the sky glow. Taken with a Nikon D50 camera using a Celestron 11inch telescope with Hyperstar (F/2). 23 images of 15 seconds each, ISO 800 were combined to make this image.
