The bright star Merope with nebulosity

Nebulosity around the bright star Merope in the open cluster M45, Plejades. You can also see the little gascloud IC349 just below the star. Photo taken with Celestron Nexstar 11 GPS @ 2800mm and Canon 600D.

Stargazing weekend

What a great weekend by the cabin, lovely nightsky with faint Aurora Borealis and meteors, great Milkyway and great company, my family went along and joined me.
My children looked at M31, M45 and the double cluster with binoculars and it was a great view.
