Mars and the Beehive Star Cluster

The planet Mars is traversing the Beehive star cluster. The picture below was taken the morning of September 30th, at 4:30 AM. The digital camera was set for a six power optical zoom and 15 second exposure. The resulting file was enhanced and sharpened using GIMP. It's not too bad for a camera tripod in Topeka.
