This morning I decided to have another go processing images incorporating flats.  After a pleasant few minutes taking telescope images of a cloudy sky with white shirt over end of telescope I produced this.  I located a magnitude 12.1 star so Venus is about 4 million times brighter than the dimmest star on this image.
