Just found some data from the early tries in astrophotography from the summer of 2014 and gave them a go.
There is a lot of comma on the edges since I didn't have an FFR at the time.
The image was captured with a Canon 350D with IR mod (filter removal).
The halos around the brightest stars are due to the UHC-S filter reflections I believe.
