Nothing but clouds in the forecast (Hyperstar has arrived)

Recommended Posts

I finally pulled the trigger on a Hyperstar for my C8.  It arrived today, with built-in filter drawer and the too-pricey Baader fast f-ratio H-alpha filter (I am too smitten with H-alpha to resist).  Of course we have nothing but cloudy weather for a week in the forecast.  I can at least start by making sure my corrector plate is centered on the optical axis of the primary (I suspect it is, because this scope came from the factory with flawless collimation).  But other than that, I need stars out to proceed with the next steps (fine tuning Hyperstar collimation).  I will post captures when I can!
