Pleiades or Seven Sisters

This is a prett good shot of the Pleiades taken a few days ago.

The dust you see around the brightest stars are not belonging to the Pleiades at all. In fact the dust belongs to a cloud of dust that this region of stars is currently passing through.

This is one of the nearest star clusters to us and you can easil make it out with the naked eye.
