Our first serious attempt at the Pleiades, with 5 hours, 14 minutes total exposure, from 1 minute frames.  Used a 8" F/4 Meade SN on a Losmandy G-11 Mount, and cooled Canon 400D DSLR at 21-23 Deg. F.  Taken over 2 nights from Nov. 6-8th at the Caldera Rim Observatory near Jemez Springs, NM, USA.  Used an Orion anti-fringing filter.  Dark and Flat frames applied and processing carried out in Nebulosity and Photobrush.
