Moonless night, good weather conditions (-4°C, relative humidity 97%, wind ~2km/h), percect tracking; shot 100 frames… and 60 were out of focus (after the meridian flip) :(
But even with just 1 hour of integration time Pleiades is breathtaking.
The One who made the Kiʹmah constellation and the Keʹsil constellation,
The One who turns deep shadow into morning,
The One who makes day as dark as night,
The One who summons the waters of the sea
To pour them out on the surface of the earth
—Jehovah is his name."
Kiʹmah is possibly a reference to Pleiades in Amos 5:8 above.
