Where in Space...?

Quick question.

The Taurus Reach depicted in Vanguard is meant to be around 200ly from Earth. Would the Pleiades Star Cluster be closer than or beyond the Taurus Reach?

The Pleaides are 400-500 lightyears away from Earth, I think.

Are they in the same direction as where the Taurus Reach is supposed to be, or in a different direction?

I have no idea. I've never read the Vanguard novels.
