Shot with 200mm lens at f/4 and ISO 1600 on Dec 30, 2013.  It appears that this is the best 21 out of 108 shots at 200 seconds each. The bright star near the top right is Rigel, which is the bottom right star in the constellation Orion.  The picture is displayed upside down from the way it appears in the sky because it is easier to see the face shape that way.

Photons Rock!
