Rigel with companion star on its shoulder

It was a really clear night but I was to tired to setup my scope so I just sat in my back yard with my camera and took a few shots. This one came out the best considering it was a full worm moon. Native American tribes as the Full Worm Moon because this was the time of year when the ground would begin to soften and the earthworms would reappear. This picture shows Rigel and a companion star on its left shoulder.
