M45 - Very Early Days

Hi all,
I thought I would post this image I got a couple of days ago, one of my first decent attempts with AP. Here at 46S latitude the Pleiades only get up to 20 above the horizon, so not ideal at all. Then only 3 hrs of darkness to boot in the New Zealand summer.
Canon 600D w/ Samyang 135mm lens, SGP unguided, ISO 400 - 34 x 90s lights, 15 darks, 30 bias, 30 flats using BYE, DSS, SiriL and GIMP.
Any comments would be appreciated! Cheers JIM

Hey Jim,
That's a great image!
I love the Samyang 135mm lens, great at capturing heaps of lights with it's fast aperture.

Nice job Jim. The sweet spot for minimum noise with the 600D is ISO 800.
