  3. Check the requirements of the imaging software you intend to use , but would agree with the above, go windows 7 64bit as its more tried & tested, you will probably be able to upgrade to windows 8 later anyway pretty cheaply (currently only £14.99) , i5 processors are pretty cheap these days too...

  8. Hi, This is my first post so be gentle I'm in the process of returning to astronomy after many years and have been deciding over the past few months what new scope to buy. I've almost settled on a cpc925 but it bothers me that if I decide at a later stage to do any AP I won't have the option of using hyperstar. I understand I can always go for a GEM mount but I like the portability and setup of a fork mounts which is important to me at least. That said the new CGEM 925 is faster compatible (not that I can find any hypterstar devices for a 9.25) but it got me thinking. Does anybody know if celestron have any plans for a new cpc925 that is faster compatible , a cpc925hd so to speak? Andy, Milton Keynes
