I composited last night’s deeeep M45 data with some older shallower data with good colour and ended up with this result:

Yet another beautiful clear Moonless night last night – and best positioned for some deeeeep imaging was M45, the Pleiades.

Managed to grab 18 x 40-minute (yes that IS 40-minute!!) subs and very quickly processed (leaving in the plane trails) just to see what I caught.

This shows more of the faint stuff in the region than I have managed to grab before with this kit.

Hind’s Variable nebula, Struve’s Lost nebula, Burnham’s nebula, NGC1555 – they’re all the same thing and it is the orange thing in the centre of this image.

A beautiful clear night last night allowed me to grab 41 x 20-minutes to go with the 24 x 20-minute subs taken in 2014.
