The Hyades is a dusty place!!

This is a test shot from the 200mm lens stopped down to f#4.5 hence the 8 diffraction spikes.
As this was only 12 x 5-minute subs I was certainly not expecting to see all the dusty stuff.
I will try and get back to do this one again not only with more time, but also as a 2-framer.
