I propose you a drawing of the Pleiades cluster made with my Skywatcher Equinox 80 mm. I was very glad to see clearly some nebulae around bright stars.
This is the link for the drawing in good resolution:
I take this message to wish you a great New Year 2012!

Look at the faint stars in the sketch and the nebulosity. Wow... Woooooooooow. Congratulation my friend, I'm more than impressed, I'm speechless.

There is no need filters for these nebulae of dust, UHC or OIII not work because it is not ionized gas. We just need a clear transparent sky and an optic wich does not diffuse the light of the brighest star too.

Why you didn't this piece of art on astro-Quebec ?
I'm still under shock by the beauty of this sketch.
