Observing location
Briga Township, Tabuk, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
Canon 6D Camera + a 55mm lens.
1 second at 20000ASA.

Image was obtained in moonlight. I had to shade the camera with my own body in order for the Moon not to cause havoc with the image. The star was visible to the naked eye and was about as bright as Delta Ceti.
