Merope and ic349

IC 349 is that little blue bit of nebulosity at the bottom of Merope. I first heard about this small thing
on the DSLR Astro group so went searching my M45 images... lo and behold, by subtracting the halo in Photoshop,
thenebulosity bounced right out. this image is the combination of two sessions for a total of 15x360 second subs. the image is cropped from
the original which is part of the M45 on this site.

Frames acquired and stacked with Nebulosity, using the 12-inch Meade classic at f5.9, Canon 350d with Hap's Mod,
guiding for all was with the piggybacked Meade 80mm and DSI Pro using PHD.

enjoy ...
