Beehive Cluster

The reason I thought you might find this one useful is that this cluster is just a smudge in the sky naked-eye. I can only really see it with averted vision without the scope. So, to take the picture I pre-focused again on Sirius and then moved the scope to where the cluster was located. There is no way I could see this in the viewfinder.
