What I thought would be a nice image although not very interesting was a shot of the Hyades but I also picked up Sh2-239 and a visitor.  Comet Kushida 144P happen to about 10.9 magnitude. 

This image was taken with a Canon 200mm F/2.8  The camera is the Canon 5D Mark II at ISO 1000 and I took three 10 minute images which were combined in Photoshop CS 4.  Jan 28, 2009 10pm MST<o:p></o:p>
