I took this picture of the Pleiades at our holiday chalet in Humberston, on the morning of 3rd of September 2013.

Although they’re a chromatic aberration, I’ve always loved diffraction spikes, so I was delighted to finally produce a reasonable image containing some! Total imaging time was only 1 hour 8 minutes, so very pleased with the result!
