Hi all,

An image of M45, the Pleiades Cluster and its foreground reflection nebula has been uploaded. This is a two panel mosaic showing a fragment of the cluster, containing the brightest stars. This image was pretty difficult to process, given the fact that the delicate dust wisps are very delicate and any, even slight, processing aimed to extract detail ended up smearing part of the wisps. In the end, a soft and more natural processing was the best option. You can find the image and some more information at:
