    Love the diffraction spikes on the stars, they're razor sharp - what was the exposure time?
    awesome shot!
    Incredible amount of nebulosity captured. The image is perfect.No hint of trails and the contrast is superb.Great Job!

    I also found the diffraction spikes quite appealing too! M45 is a personal favorite when it comes down to open clusters, and astrophotography!!
    Just picked up a Nikon D70 body for my CGE 11 now will someone make the clouds go away so I can use it .?? We have had 3 clear nights and the problem was dew so bad I could have had a bath or two..
