Pleiades, the Seven Sisters (M45)

This is by no means a “showcase” of talents as I do not profess to be an astrophotographer.  I do, however, claim to be an amateur astronomer who happens to enjoy creating visual documentation of my night sky finds.  I’m also slowly working my way through the Messier Catalog of Deep Space Objects.  Therefore, I present to you the star cluster Pleiades, the Seven Sisters (Messier 45).

Interesting fact:  Subaru is the Japanese word for Pleiades.  The Subaru logo is derived from the star cluster.
