About this image

Quite frustrating time at the moment, point a telescope or camera at the sky it clouds up very quickly. Conditions bad could only see 4 stars continued to see the result, processing in Sequator, Image Plus and Canon software. At least somethings visible. Hot pixels are a problem in this image.
