M44 The Beehive Cluster
« on: 18:58:51, 27 February, 2018 »
I've never looked at this part of the sky before and with the moon being so bright I thought I'd have a go even though this object is probably not best suited for the focal length (1700mm).

I really treated it as an exercise processing star colour.  Exposure times were 4x 300s in each RGB (1hour total)
Thanks for taking a look  :thumbup:
