been seeing some nice images of M45 and didn't realize there was any dust/nebulosity in Pleiades!  So with it getting lower in the sky for me I decided to try my hand at it last night with my new WO GT81. thanks for looking!  i think it came out pretty good for a newbie.  Haha!  might put some more time in on this tonight if the clouds go away.  Really stoked on the GT81

Wonderful image, pinpoint stars, accurate color, well defined nebulosity, and pitch black background. Perfect!
