Description

Central part of M45. I was planning to capture this one in a 9 pane mosaic, but after the first night I realised that M45 is rising later during the evening at a acceptable altitude for photographing. So I decided to capture the remaining panes in a few months.

This part is shot with only 5-minute frames in RGB (12x5 min R, 12x5 min G and 9x5 min B)
