The magnificent star cluster Pleiades, also known as The Seven Ancient Greek Sisters and Subaru in Japan, is a collection of young and bright stars that currently pass through interstellar cosmic dust. It will take them several tens of thousands of years to move past this dust.
I traveled 45 minutes last week to find a dark sky on the borders of Oxfordshire and Warwickshire, it was one of the coldest nights this Autumn. The lights were captured unguided (manual dithering method), target was manual focused.
