I noticed that the previous version of this image had many hot pixels so reprocessed it to try and remove them and then stretched it to see what the magnitude limit was.  The dimmest star I can see here is BD +17 1971 at magnitude 10.14.  If anyone can find a dimmer one I will buy them a beer at Winchester Weekend!
