As the Pleiades don't all fit in my FOV, I thought I'd go for the nebula around Merope. Only managed 3 exposures for each filter before clouds. I thought there was a flaw in the image below Merope but it turns out to be IC349. Didn't know about this one until I looked it up. Falls a bit short of the Hubble version of the image though...
