Altair Hypercam 533C- pre use testing


Recommended Posts

I'm due to be taking delivery of one of these tomorrow.  There seems to be very little information out there on the unit so I was wondering if there is any tests I could run on it that would provide useful information for the community at large.  Would it largely just be sharpcap sensor analysis?

I'm pretty sure with temperature control I should be able to build some dark masters too not sure what other masters I can make, although that would obviously be only for the camera.

There is supposed to be some clear skies over the weekend so I'll be giving it a burl.  Not got the adaptor for my canon lenses but will be trying it on the 130pds without coma corrector which should hopefully provide some interesting information (and seagul stars)

Did a sharp cap sensor analysis.  Turns out most of my lcd screens have flicker which isn't ideal so had to point it at the ceiling with a bit of paper over the sensor to get a good run
