Welcome back Sisters

Pleiades (Seven Sisters) are once again gracing my night skies early in the morning. I decided to try something new this season and use the dedicated astro camera to capture this beautiful cluster. After months of consistently cloudy nights, I finally got a few minutes of clear skies and was able capture eighteen 3-minute frames. The astro camera definitely helps to bring out the nebulosity of this cluster. I will definitely be chasing this target as the season progresses. Stay tuned!
