Pleiades, also called the Seven Sisters, is a galactic star cluster in the constellation Taurus, about 415 light-years away. The faint bluish glow of the nebula surrounding each star is visible in this photo. This image was taken under the dark clear skies of Basud, Camarines Norte, Philippines, using a Sky-Watcher 4-in f/9 refractor, Kenko NES mount, a Canon 450D DSLR, and a home-built autoguider.
