As a bit of an experiment I did this immediately after imaging 12 Victoria. Here we have the brightest star in the sky - Sirius - at magnitude -1.46 in the constellation Canis Major. 60 x 10-second subs. I might return to this one to try and get a few more background stars.

That's a cracking image! As I stare at it, the BG stars seem to move slightly & come forward. 8)

Glad you like it :D I will take some deeper subs of this region to get more of the background stars but keep this version of Sirius which isn't too overwhelming.
