Description

one of my first attempt with M45 and my SBIG 8300
not a great result, I must admit: there is a bad red cast and a strange reddish halo around some stars
but, again, this is my best picture on the subject, so I'm going to keep it in my gallery at least for one year, until I decide to try again shooting at the seven sisters
