Sirius and the Little Beehive Cluster

The star Sirius and the “Little Beehive” cluster (Messier 41) just moving up and over some trees in my yard (Weatherly, Pennsylvania) late last evening (January 2, 2016). Canon 6D, Canon 100mm f/2.8L, ISO 5000, 20 seconds, f/4.5, all mounted on an iOptron ZEQ215 mount. Star flares created using a Tiffen 67mm 4 Point Star Filter (2mm).
