Description

Pleiades hybrid image. I combined 30x60second images shot with a 11" Celestron EdgeHD/HyperStar & QHY23M through a Baader Luminance filter. I combined this new luminance layer with RGB from last years' effort with a QHY9M & AT65EDQ. New RGB would've been nice, but the forecast shows clouds from now until 2015
