Another ridiculously over exposed image of Venus next to the Pleiades last night from the garden.

I think the dimmest star here is about magnitude 15, ~40 million times dimmer than Venus.  A hint here of M45's nebulosity.

Stacked in Deep Sky Stacker, processed in Pixinsight & Faststone Image Viewer. Cropped.

Total exposure 23 minutes 32 sec (2 beers).
