Procyon, alfa Canis Minor

Procyon is a very bright star near Sirius. For testing purposes, I took a series of shots through my Vixen 12×80 binoculars. Using the shift-and-add method, also known as “image-stacking“, I could spot magnitude 10 stars near Procyon. I didn’t use any tracking, not even manual tracking.
