Beehive cluster Wide Field

I have recently bought a DSRL camera: Canon EOS 450D. Today it has shot for the first time to the stars. Beehive cluster was an easy target tonight. The maximum zoom the lens permits let us separate some of the components of the M44 cluster. The resulting image has been made of ten shots of 5 seconds of exposition each one.
