I'm doing a live sky cam stream right now on YouTube, with music using the $50 Sony STARVIS IMX290 sensor on a board. See how it's working in real time streaming as a webcam in OBS studio (no other software such as SharpCap being used, so I'm not getting to the fully half second integration that is possible.) It's very simple, just having some fun and not very deep. I'm just relaxing playing each musical selection by hand. Here's the link https://youtu.be/L9S_VwBD96U

Up :^)  It' near my zenith, it's very very wide, as the lens that came with the board is only several millimeters wide.  YouTube tends to reverse views sometimes to the streamer, so I'm not sure of the orientation as viewed by others, but the brightest star in the view should be Arcturus, if that helps.   I'm in Central Florida.

 

Thanks to you and Photomagica for the positive comments.

It is in the proper orientation on YouTube. Funny, I’m sitting with son while he works on homework, listening to The Planets Suite prior to finding your channel.

Very peaceful.  I'm imaging M51 here in Southwest Florida for the next two hours.  Loving the last low humidity nights for the next 6 months.
