Hyperstar Imaging with Edge 1100HD and Atik 460ex (OSC)

Recommended Posts

Glad you like the images, guys. I'm happy to keep posting them if you aren't all tired of seeing them!

:laugh:

Here is my Bubble Nebula and M52 open cluster from 23 August. (24X240 seconds).

Not often do we see such good star shapes from the Hyperstar. The Snake image makes this point nicely. They're very good.

Do you think this could be the combo of the hyperstar with the Edge HD rather than the usual vanilla C8? I do after looking through one with 100 degree eyepieces and imaging with one briefly so far at f7 :)

The stars are very good right to the edges and even sharper on axis compared to my old C8 xlt.

This one is my favorite so far. Although I framed it poorly, I think it shows really nice detail around the Horsehead and Flame nebulae. I took this a couple of weeks ago before the moon became too bright.

This is a four panel mosaic, each panel 10X180 seconds.

Here is NGC 891, the "Outer Limits" Glalaxy, 30 subs X 4 minutes and cropped. Taken the same night as the above image.

Thanks Sundancer… much appreciated!

Here is my (poorly framed) Rosette Nebula… a four panel mosaic (4 panels of 30 minute subs).

Thank you Gina!

I'll be out tonight… the skies look like they will be very nice. I plan to take a few Merrier open clusters for a friend writing a book and then on to a few projects!

Here is my (again, poorly framed) M45 from a couple of weeks ago. I cropped a bunch off of 6 panels. Each 10 X 120 seconds).

Blimey - nice images!

I have a hyperstar but I haven't got around to putting it on the scope.  Might have to rethink this now!  I use mono cameras so it's slightly more arduous (and clear skies are at such a premium...) but you must have your collimation absolutely spot on.

Well done - keep posting!

Most impressive, lovely set of images, what makes it even more remarkable

is that most of the images are all panels stitched together,

Probably take me all year to get the data for one of them images with 6 panels

excellent work and keep them coming.

Thanks for the kind words all!

This is a 10 panel mosaic I did of the Flaming Star/Tadpole nebulas but it seems a little thin. (8X150 seconds/panel)

Thank you, Gina!

I was out Monday evening and imaged the reflection nebula pair, M78 and NGC 2071 in Orion. (Single, 35 subs X 180 seconds).

NGC 7129 (open cluster and reflection nebula) and open cluster NGC 7142 in Cepheus from Wednesday night.

A tiny object but different.  (20 X 180 sec)
