First nigth out ever!! There are tons of images of the Pleyades out there. If you've already seen a few, this one might not add anything to what you've already seen, but being my second astrophoto ever, I cannot be more proud! :-) The fact that it's only 3 shots, 3 minutes each, also shows how bright this object is - well, at least the reflection nebula surrounding the brightest stars :-)
