The Pleiades

The Pleiades. 15.4 sec exposure. 70mm. F/4.5. Nikon D70 on stationary mount/tripod - no tracking

  1. did you use your telescope or just the camera ?

  2. Just to reiterate - no telescope used. just normal 70mm lens on camera on tripod (no tracking). Have lots of other shots (up to 2 minutes) - I was trying to catch a perseids meteor - which I did see twice! - but no luck. On the longer exposure shots you just get lots of star streaks and a very bright sky due to all the light pollution
