William Optics SD-66 refractor, piggybacked on a 10" Meade LX-200GPS in Alt-Az. Wide field achieved with the help of an Atik .5 focal reducer/corrector. A stack of 40x40 second exposures, processed with Adobe Photoshop.
The wonderful Pleiades cluster in all its glory... Most definitely one of the nicest Jewels of the Sky.
