I was actually out trying to image Saturn & Pluto (Pete Lawrence & Paul Abel challenge).  Made the mistake of looking over my shoulder and there were low elevation NLC's with pronounced horizontal bands.  Noticed M45 rising so included it in the image.  Church in foreground is All Saints in Middleton Cheney.
