The Pleiades

The tiny Pleiades Constellation is also known as the "Seven Sisters" or Subaru in Japanese. 7 stars can be seen without binoculars or a telescope, but with those instruments over 100 stars are visible. In Oak Ridge we are lucky to see any stars at all, we have terrible "light pollution" here! This photo was taken with a 300mm telephoto lens. It is extremely difficult to photograph this constellation because it is usually located straight overhead, not an easy position to aim a spotting scope or a telescope!
