First Shot of the Pleiades This Season!

The site of the Pleiades at a reasonable hour 12:30 am can only mean one thing,  Fall is just around the corner.  This is image consists of 5 individual images stacked for a total exposure of 9 minutes. Some nebulosity is visible.  This is one of my favorite objects worthy of more shots with longer exposure time.
