Pleiades for first light


Recommended Posts

After a few tries over two nights, including complete resets, I thought I'd gotten close on collimation with my new C6 Hyperstar v4 last night, and started taking some images. It may not be quite perfect, but I'm real happy with the detail I'm seeing, and the speed of acquisition.

The main downside seems to be massive quantities of data generated. I think I'm either going to start buying massive hard drives or start live stacking 5-10 minutes at a time and saving just the stacks for another round of stacking with APP. Time to start saving up for a camera with a larger well depth than the QHY183 sensor so I can double or triple sub length.

Anyway, here is the first image off this scope/hyperstar.
