Messier 45 in the constellation Taurus
Messier 45, commonly known as the Pleiades, is an open cluster found in the constellation Taurus. Messier 45 is surrounded by a dusty reflection nebula, which accounts for its blue coloration, along with some pinkish-red coloration due to an ionized gas component. The image was processed with multiscale processing in PixInsight. The image taken with a Takahashi E-130D f/3.3 astrograph and a SBIG STF-8300c camera on a Paramount. Total integration time was 4 hr 20 min (26 x 10 min lights @ -20 degrees C; 20 darks; 64 flats, 64 bias). Images were graded in Images Plus 5.0; Sub-exposures calibrated, registered, integrated, and processed in PixInsight 1.8.2.1098.
