Pleiades (Messier 45)

Today, we took our first photo in Astrophotograpy with our new telescope. We took the picture of Pleiades a.k.a. Messier Object 45.

Pleiades is consist of 7 blue stars (seven sisters) which are very young. You can clearly see the seven sisters in the picture we took.

Our photo is in a very amateur shape, as it can be seen. We used our 4.5 inch Newtonian telescope with 500 mm focal lenght and simply put our Camera (EOS 350D) to the eyepiece.
