The Pleaides

This star cluster is named the Pleaides, it is mentioned in the book of Job in the Old Testament when God was questioning Job. It is often mistaken for the little dipper due to its shape. However, even though it is much smaller in size than the little dipper, but easier to recognize. This image was taken with the Astro-Physics AP160 refractor.
