The Pleiades after Midnight

The Pleiades in the early morning from my driveway in Austin, Texas. The Pleiades are an early sign of coming of winter goodness in the skies in the northern hemisphere. This image was taken with my 250/51mm William Optics RedCat Petzval refractor, with a Baader Skyglow filter, and ZWO ASI533 MC Pro camera on a SW AZ/EQ 5 Pro mount, automated with a ZWO ASIAIR Plus astrophotography controller. During the course of the night I was able to monitor progress with my MacBook, iPad, and iPhone whichever was at hand. I compensated for my bright Bortle 7 with 2 and a half hours of data.
