It is worst taking astrophoto in this rainy season. I spent a lot of time and gasoline ( almost 1200km of drive) to find a clear sky and what I got is only this picture of M45. But I'm very happy with the result. The night was very high humidity so my main setup with newton 150/750 died before midnight. This photo is taken with Star Adventure and modded Canon60D and Samyang 135mm.

I started using startnet++ with Pixinsight. The tool is awesome and I definitely recommend you all to use this tool in a processing.
