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.

Amazing, the stars look so near that you think you could travel there but in reality they unimaginably far away. Amazing image. 
 
The seven Sisters never looked so good!
 
WOW,...mind boggling when you consider how many millions of stars are in this one shot.
