M45 Pleiades Wild Field.

In astronomy, the Pleiades, or Seven Sisters (Messier 45 or M45), is an open star cluster containing middle-aged hot B-type stars located in the constellation of Taurus. It is among the nearest star clusters to Earth and is the cluster most obvious to the naked eye in the night sky. The celestial entity has several meanings in different cultures and traditions.

ImageComet C/2014 Q2 (Lovejoy) - Tracked on the Nucleus by Radical Retinoscopy, on Flickr

Comet C/2014 Q2 (Lovejoy) has just reached a height of about fifteen degrees on December 21, 2014. From my observing site, the southern horizon is my most heavily light polluted area of the sky. I can barely discern a tail at this point; the next few weeks should prove to be interesting! The image was made of a stack of 38 twenty second exposures (Canon T2i, 100 mm f/2 lens @ f/3.2, ISO 800). Tracking was done with an iOptron Sky Tracker with stacking done in Nebulosity. The images were stacked with the nucleus of the comet remaining stationary causing slight trailing of the stars.
