Messier 45, commonly known as the Pleiades or Seven Sisters, is found in the constellation Taurus. The structure in the nebulous regions is created by interstellar magnetic fields.

Images were graded in Images Plus 5.0; Subs calibrated, registered, integrated, and processed in PixInsight 1.8 Ripley with final levels/curves adjustment in Adobe Photoshop CC.
