7 Sisters and M51 in one evening

First clear sky for a while to so got out there to image anything I could find. Started of with another go at the 7 Sisters on of my favourites, had not imaged this with my Canon 350d before so was keen to see how it would perform. Did a really nice job of capturing the extra detail around the stars longer exposures with a guided set up would be better but I am heading that way now.

The other one is M51 my second attempt at this wonderful galaxy was able to capture quite a bit of detail on the spiral arms this time but that was with an almost full moon so cant wait to have another go on a dark night with the moon out of the way. Any how not too bad for an evenings work I felt.
