M45 (The Pleiades Cluster)

M45 (The Pleiades Cluster) is one of the prettiest things to view at during the fall/winter skies. It looks amazing through a telescope. The blue nebulosity around the stars can be seen in the image.

I took captured this in 2015. I wish I had more data with this image. I'm going to try to take this picture again when I have a chance.

M31 (Andromeda Galaxy)

M31 (Andromeda Galaxy) is the galaxy closest to us. This is a very bright object which can be observed with our naked eye.

I took this image of M31 in 2014. The target is not in focus, I have since gotten a Bahtinov mask to avoid future issues. Even this blurry images is a lot better than my previous attempt where I have star trails.
