A photo shooting with the Seven Sisters

The Pleiades (M45) are an open star cluster which can be seen in the night sky without a telescope. They are also known as the Seven Sisters. I have imaged M45 three years ago. It was actually one of the first objects I ever photographed.

The image is also available in full resolution.
