    I would not label your two bright star like objects as "noise" generated by 
    the camera.
    These are in fact DEAD pixels and will always be there - sometimes you can 
    remove
    them or make them less obvious by dropping the voltage to your camera - I 
    run mine at
    about 9.6v instead of the recommended 12v. You will also notice that if you 
    increase
    the voltage you will probably find a few more. The BAD news is that the 
    number of
    dead pixels will increase over the course of time .
    
    Cheers from a rainy Cape Town
