A wide field photo form Aldebaran to Plejades, stars which are one of my favorite, since I was 11 years old.

I tried to bring out the clouds near Plejades, which are not very clear visible but visible.

I used the NON-modified Sony NEX-5N together with Sigma 60mm/2.8 @ f4.0
32 subs x 180 sec

- no darks
- no flats
- no bias

To aviod the hot pixel in the picture I have made 8 groups of subs to stack in median, the results once more stacked in average.
This works better compared to stack all in median.
