Description

LRGB image of M45 (Pleiades/Thurayya/Seven Sisters) resulting from two nights worth of imaging on a recent camping trip to Jebel Akdhar. A fair bit of wind and a lot of rain didn't help :-) If you ever been to Oman you know how rarely it rains, so this was quite unexpected. Luckily my astro tent in combination with a Weber BBQ cover (what else!) held off all the water!

Can't decide which version I prefer. The darker original version looks more pleasing to the eye to me but I really like how the faint nebulosity comes out in this one.
