fun with old lens (Blue Mountains)

While I had the old Takumar lens on, I thought I'd try another target. Messier 45 (M45) aka the Subaru. The Pleiades.

I was very surprised by the first shots. This is a fun lens. I stopped it down one position (whatever is between 2 and 2.8) and it cleaned up the image. Neat.
