The Pleiades (M45)
I guess this one needs no introduction, this was the first deep sky image that i finished. The Pleiades is one of the closest star clusters to Earth lying on average 444 light years from us in the constellation Taurus. It is dominated by large hot blue stars thought to be formed within the last 100 million years and is surrounded by a faint reflection nebula. This image was a mixture of exposures ranging from 2-3minutes depending on how well my mount was tracking at the time (i wasn't guiding).
