Close Up on Alcyone, brightest of the Pleiades

Since I don't have a focal reducer for the AT6RC, the f/9 focal length
gives a bit more magnification than with the Newt. The night was so
dark and clear, thought I'd try pick one of the lights in the Pleiades
before catching up on my sleep.

Wonderful stuff.

Unguided, 1600 ISO, 250 x 15 sec. JPEG frames, noise reduction enabled, with bias/flat calibration.
