City Lights RedCat Pleiades

The Pleiades in an urban sky (Bortle 6+ light pollution) with data from a tiny 2" WO Redcat 250/51mm telescope. This image has 90 minutes of total exposure at ISO 3200 with a Sony a7 iii. Pixinsight background extraction, color calibration and smarter noise reduction has considerably improved the image. 180 30 second exposures from the Sony a7iii stacked in Nebulosity with background extraction, color calibration, and noise reduction in PixInsight. Final crop and exposure adjustment in Photoshop.
