The pleiades, M45, needs little introduction. this image is a stack of 15 second subframes totalling a mere 15.25 minutes. sky conditions were reasonably good for the Uk except i had to shoot between banks of cloud. i have just reprocessed the date with particular attention to noise reduction in the blue channel in photoshop cs2.
