Just hope I have identified it correctly, oh the shame if I haven't!  Capella is top left.  Reports are that is is now magnitude 7 and declining.  Stack of x40 exposures on an ordinary tripod.  Alignment and stacking in DSS, processed in Pixinsight and Faststone.

Thanks Gary! I'd say your ID skills on variable stars is unrivalled by anyone!  I can now relax!
