Pleiades field

AKA M45 and IC353

Field centered on R.A. 03h 50' & Dec. +25° 00'


A tentative to shot IC353, a very faint nebula close the Pleiades, produced this result. IC353 is barely visible as a glare around PPM 9297, the bright blue star almost in the middle of this image. Stack of two shots of 45 minutes through a Nikon Nikkor 300mm f/4,5 lens + one shot of 60 minutes through the Apo Pentax SDHF75 fitted with its TeleCompressor Pentax RC0.72x35.
