With a continuing run of clear nights maintaining some good transparency I decided to give M45 another attempt. This time I went with the apo which has a nice field for The Pleiades. At last I seem to have captured a good amount of the nebulosity for which the cluster is noted. I think I might need some exceptional conditions to get much deeper under MK skies with my present equipment so quite a pleasing result for what has been a challenging target up until now. Details: Megrez 88 apo. 15 x 10 minute exposures @ iso1600 with CLS in DSS, FIV, CS2 & XAT.
