Sirius setting in the west in the early morning hours

on Tuesday, December 20, 2016

With Christmas approaching I thought I would share this image of Sirius setting in the western sky. This view was captured about 4:30 AM local time from my backyard in Weatherly, Pennsylvania on December 6, 2016.
Tech Specs: Canon 6D tripod mounted using a Canon EF70-200mm f/2.8L USM lens, ISO 3200, 10 seconds, f/2.8 and 70mm. Star filter was used for diffraction spikes.
