M45, The Pleiades

Also called the Seven Sisters, even though you can only see six naked eye. Shot this with the ST80, and failed to get it well-centered in the frame, so it has some pretty bad coma in the upper right corner. I processed out most of the purple halos. There's a little bit of blue nebulosity, but it's mostly washed out by the nearly full moon.

5 x 120 sec Canon Digital Rebel XT in the ST80 @ f/5, guided through the LX200.
