Here’s a picture of the Milkway with Vega. This picture is a stacked composite of 12, 2 minute exposures at ISO800. The camera was mounted ontop of the scope piggyback style. I got my first successful attempts at the milkway last night and this is the results of my second night. The scope and camera were pointed at the zenith (straight up) which helped out a lot with the image / light pollution.
Sirius is one of the brightest stars in the sky, if not the brightest. It looks like a diamond when you look at it thru the eye piece.
