Good work.  I'm starting to feel right sorry for Betelgeuse.  I use it for a sync star and had to give it up and use Sirius on early evenings.

Yes, nice work Jerry. I am down here in NJ and caught a shot as well.

 

 Shot this on Monday night at about 6:15, constellation was just clearing the tree tops. Used an easy grab and go setup - Canon 60Da w/zoom lens at 18mm; on simple tripod. This is a single shot at 2.5 sec; f/5.6; ISO 3200.
