Here's my shot from last month of the Pleiades.  It was with the Canon T5 on the iOptron mount.

Now THAT is really nice!  Good stars, round and not overshot, but the nebulosity clearly showing up! :)

Steve, Bill,
I had an old Sioux Indian tell me the story about the seven sisters and how they were trapped on Devils Tower, really allot of stories around about Pleiades all very old and interesting. The Sioux claimed there were 7 stars but that one is missing thus the lost sister as I recall.
As always great picture.
Thank you !
Rick

Thank you gentlemen for the comments.  I hesitated about posting this because there were no Meade products used when I shot this.  Then I remembered I used my Meade power pack on the mount.  :)
