Strike three, the mighty pleiades - M45

After the orion nebula session we had some extra time to get another shot. (Against other astrophotographers, we haven't yet produce several hours of photo material, but the results are surprisingly good). In the future we will try to do some longer sessions and check out the impact. In the meantime, have a look at this nice pleiades-picture here. As you might know, the pleiades are visible to the naked eye, but we haven't expect to see this beautiful colors and nebulae by the camera... stunning!
