As I was wining in another thread the Perseid night was pretty disappointing. So I thought I'll make a photo of Pleiades, cause it was the first time since I've got new gear when they were over the horizon.
Location southern Poland so they're now visible around 2AM. Pretty crazy hours especially in the middle of the week.
Anyway first try without guiding, near horizon which in my case is bright as he...avens city so was pretty hard to catch any details besides the stars itself.
Stack of 7 photos with exposition time of 5s each, ISO 800 and f/2.
Lens used AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.4.
Stack of 21 photos with exposition time of 1.3s each, ISO 800 and f/2.8.
Lens used AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR II at 200mm.
Both with Nikon D500.
Stacking in DeepSkyStacker.
