Leo comments that he doesn't normally experience seeing which is good enough to permit separating the brightest star in our night sky, Sirius, from it's much less luminous companion - often fondly known as The Pup. On 2017 February 24 the conditions allowed this image to be captured using a Celestron 14 telescope at f/11 and a webcam ASI 120MM-S.
