Description

Two-panel mosaic widescreen view at 11.2k by 3.8k pixels of the Taurus Molecular Cloud from LBN782 (CED 30) to the Pleiades (M45).

This is one of my favorite parts of the sky given its rich complexity.

Hmmm...I see that Astrobin's thumbnailer forces a limited square crop vs. an inclusive view of widescreens, so one is rewarded with a surprise on opening this image!
