M45 - 29.10.2022 at 22.44 Helsinki Observation number 110448

Visibility III / V

Tuomas Salo, Ursa (Helsinki)

I photographed the Pleiades by stacking 8 pieces of 2 second exposures with DeepSkyStacker. As a bonus picture, a landscape star picture taken with an IPhone 13 Pro max phone, if the Pleiades can also be seen. I also stacked 55 2-second exposures of the Pleiades and the image became a little sharper.
