I did not know that there are HUNDREDS of galaxies in the same field as the Pleiades star cluster. If you can (and if you want to), please click the pic in my web post to get to the high res image to hunt for galaxies.  There's also a link to an annotated version that highlights some the galaxies. It is very easy to get lost in this rich star field.  The image is a two pane mosaic.




Clear skies,
