I pointed my tripod mounted camera near the star Sirus and framed the shot such that I captured two palm trees in the foreground. I could see Orion appearing to the upper right. The exposure was long enough to register many stars and Orion, as well as show some detail in the palm trees; but was short enough to minimize any star trail effect.
