M45 Pleiades Star Cluster by Chuck Manges

This is an amazing photograph of the Pleiades Star Cluster, also known as M45, or the "Seven Sisters". It's a group of young hot stars left over from a star forming region: think of what the Orion Nebula will look like in a few million years. 

Chuck captured this image using a Orion ED102CF telescope with a QHY9M camera, and then processed it in Photoshop.
