Ursa Minor: First photo of 2019

I was after meteors but didn't catch any "on film". No luck but some of the frames caught Ursa Minor:

How can I be one with the universe when we don't know what 96% of it is.

It's a bit like the old game of 'Where's Wally'! :D I think it spot the bear hanging by his tail on the far left hand side!
I use an 11" reflector (Celestron CPC 1100) and a 3" refractor, (Sky-Watcher ST80) mounted on an equatorial wedge, housed in a 2.2m Pulsar observatory. I use a ZWO ASI 120MM, ZWO ASI1600MC and Canon 1300D for imaging.

Good game! I found it after comparing with Stellarium!
