Pleiades is too wide to get in one shot with normal telescope. Would take approximately 25 tiles to get whole cluster. Therefore, the plan is to use the smaller telescope on top to take an image of the whole cluster at once in different filters.

The whole cluster can fit into the telescope's field of view (image taken in Observation 2):
