M44 – The Beehive cluster – in perspective

Beautiful clear night last night (08/03/2016) although there was a LOT of water vapour in the air.  Main thing – it was dark & Moonless 🙂

I got both frames on M44 with the Canon 200mm lenses and the M26C OSC CCDs.  Left hand frame 18 x 10-minute subs, right hand frame 16 x 10-minute subs.

I have been after this image for a number of years but until last night the weather has never played ball.
