Starry, starry night ....

Well it's cold, clear and the moon is low. Had a great view of the Orion Nebula at 52x - quite spectacular. Then simply had a go at a normal photo shot of the Pleiades and it's neighbours (shown here). Not too bad, about 14sec. exposure/ISO800 at 50mm so start to get a few star trails - but you get the idea. Clearly shows the different star colours. Saturn will be good soon - rings already opening out for us.
