Deep Sky Imaging Session - November 1, 2013

I join some members of Astronomical League of the Philippines (ALP) for a deep sky imaging session under the dark skies of Caliraya, Laguna. The sky in the mid evening was good and I was able to setup my Canon EOS 500D DSLR on EF100-400mm IS L lens on Vixen GP-DX mount to image the Seven sisters which is also commonly called the Pleiades star cluster or M45. I exposed for a total exposure of around 45 minutes initially before the mount asked for a mount reversal thus I ended my exposure for this beautiful star cluster. It was also a very nice experience for me to be able to start imaging the DSOs once again after a long imaging drought. I hope to be able to do more in the next weekends to come.
