Job 9:9

Job 9:9-10
9 He is the Maker of the Bear and Orion,
the Pleiades and the constellations of the south.
10 He performs wonders that cannot be fathomed,
miracles that cannot be counted.

The Pleiades, M45

Last night (1/10) I took the scope and camera to a reasonably dark location under clear, transparent skies and did some photography.  The Pleiades were almost directly overhead, well away from the city lights.  Because the Pleiades is so bright, and the sky was so clear and dark, I ran the camera at 1 minute exposures, but experimented with iso 1600.  I must say, I am quite pleased with the results.  Again, I used the camera lens at 300mm.
