M 44....an image at last!

An evening of reasonable clarity at last allowed some attempts at imaging. This image of the central region of M44 (The Beehive Cluster) doesn't show the subject to best effect (why I need a widefield apo!) but did reveal the guider as working nicely after the previous unidentified problems. I was pleased to see that it has picked up UGC 4526 which is the galaxy near bottom centre. A second version has been processed to give more emphasis to the star colours. Details: 7x 5minute exposures @iso400 prime focus with CLS filter in DSS & CS2.
