Nice image! :)

I do not think anyone will be packing that view into the eyepiece of a regular telescope! 

Will take a fairly wide field pair of binoculars to get it in, I would think.

It goes to show that the humble DSLR can often capture objects that many other techniques cannot. Very much in that category is the Hyades star cluster which I cannot get into the field of view of my 15x70 binoculars. Hopefully, one day I will get a driven mount to take longer exposures but that would almost be cheating.
